MICA Counter & Analyzer
Semi-automated microcolony counter in CFU (Colony Forming Units)
Our mission: Counting culturable microorganisms at their microcolony stage, faster
MICA : Counting Cells faster
MICA is the very first microcolony semi-automated counter on the market. Thanks to its unrivalled optical resolution combined with a cutting edge software using machine learning, it is capable of detecting and counting microorganisms at their early stage of microcolony in record time.

A revolutionnary technology
Diamidex has developed a patented technology based on fluorescent marking allowing to target many specific microorganisms
The Diamidex technology: a combination of culture, fluorescent marking and revolutionary optical equipment
Diamidex has designed patented solutions for targeting only certain specific microoganisms. Thanks to a cutting edge technology combining the use of culture and fluorescent marking with a revolutionnary optical equipment, it is now possible to make microorganism visible sooner than with the traditional method, at their very early stage of microcolony.
One technology, many microorganisms detected
Our patented technology allows to target many microorrganisms of interest:
- Legionella pneumophila
- Alicyclobacillus spp.
- Pseudomonas Aerigunosa
Culture: the only reliable method to detect and count microorganisms
Culture on a Petri dish, the Louis Pasteur’s method, has been the most effective way of identifying and counting microorganisms since the 19th century. To date, this thechnique still remains the reference method in many industries to detect and count mircoorganisms. Its principle : extracting the microorganisms from a sample, putting them on a dedicated Petri dish, containing the “food” they need to grow, then wait. Once they have multiplied enough, they get visible to the eye, and can be counted. Though reliable, this method is long (up to several days according to the target microorganism).
