Pseudomonas aeruginosa CFU from 14h – coming soon

Fast & Automated CFU Counter for Pseudomonas aeruginosa in filterable samples.


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.

With MICA, get your test results in CFU faster and improve your microbiological workflow.

MICA Pseudomonas : Accelerate P. aeruginosa enumeration in your filtrable samples

Don’t change your habits,
count all Pseudomonas aeruginosa cultured on your usual CN agar plate,
In CFU – Automatically – And much sooner! 

  • Perform your usual procedure (NF EN ISO 16266 )
  • Do not change nore add any reagent
  • Incubate far less longer than usual (from 14 hours instead of 44 hours)
  • And use MICA Pseudomonas to count P. aeruginosa at their microcolony stage!

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 microcolony stage.

  • Automated Smartscan: 70 shots per membrane
  • Fluorescence detection and bright field

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 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

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.
