GelCount Colony Counting


The GelCount™ system by Oxford Optronix scans and counts mammalian, yeast, and bacterial colonies in a wide variety of Petri dish and cell culture plate formats. This system is designed for the detection, counting and characterization of stained/adherent mammalian cell colonies or of unstained/non-adherent colonies in soft agar or collagen assays and can be used with a wide range of substrates and cell types. The software is fully trainable and can be programmed to recognize specific colony features. Detailed information such as diameter, area, density, and nearest neighbor is provided, as well as high-resolution images.
