Colony Counter

A colony counter is a laboratory instrument used in microbiology to quantify and enumerate the number of bacterial or fungal colonies on a petri dish or agar plate. It is a valuable tool for researchers and microbiologists to assess the growth and concentration of microorganisms in a given sample. It is equipped with a magnifying glass or lens that can be positioned over the plate to enhance visibility, especially when dealing with smaller or less distinct colonies. The accurate counting of colonies is crucial in these applications, as it provides valuable information for scientific research, quality control, and clinical diagnosis.
