Chromogenic solution with MICA for fast counting

MICA Chromogenic

Early-CFU Colony Counter on Chromogenic Agar Plates

Chromogenic Technologies

A reduced incubation time on Chromogenic agar plates & semi-automated enumeration of microorganisms

The MICA Chromogenic Counter makes it possible to count objects (such as micro colonies) on a membrane. The optical system of the counter takes very high-resolution snapshots of each membrane, which are then analyzed by the MICA counter’s software to determine the precise number of objects present on the membrane. MICA Chromogenic allows enumeration after a reduced incubation on chromogenic Agar Plates.

One counter, many specific software solutions

MICA, the first smart microcolony counter on the market

An extreme sensitivity allowing to detect microorganisms at their early culturable stage

Thanks to an unmatched optical resolution among colonies counters, MICA is capable of detecting and counting microorganisms at their micro colony stage.

  • Automated Smartscan

A semi-automatic solution, easy to use and to implement

Designed as a turnkey solution, MICA is easy to use and to implement, by all technicians. The operator is guided step-by-step through a simplified protocol according to the targeted microorganism. The automatic counting of microcolonies ensures fewer uninterpretable results than traditional culture method, faster

Integrated safety and traceability

MICA includes a software according to the targeted microorganism. The use of MICA is 21 CFR Part 11 compliant. The analysis history is accessible, and all data are exportable and can be integrated into a LIMS or CRM system making of MICA an essential decision support tool.

 

A smart counter easily integrated into a LEAN management system

MICA has been specifically created to meet laboratories’ and industrials’ needs to improve their productivity. Technician time savings are made thanks to a simplified protocol, including function such as repeatability of results & readings. Results are released faster to the client allowing a better microbiological workflow.
