UV transilluminators for UV fluorescent stains

The unique UVP ColonyDoc-It Imaging Station enables researchers to quickly and accurately count colonies. The high resolution digital color camera identifies the smallest colonies. Plate and filter sizes from 33-150 mm can be accommodated. Attachable doors create a darkroom environment by eliminating ambient light. Applications include microbiology, hygiene studies, antibiotic testing, quality control GFP colonies, and fluids contamination.

System Features
  • DigiCam - digital color camera with 24 megapixel resolution
  • Select from several light sources for illuminating a wide range of stained media
  • Slide the filter selector to one of two positions
  • A wide range of emission filters are available
  • The plate alcove accommodates pour, spread and spiral plates and filters with sizes from 33 mm to 150 mm<
  • Capture colony sizes as small as 0.08 mm
  • Generate fast automatic and accurate colony counting with detailed statistics
  • Define parameters including eight color differentiation, split or merge, filter by group or size
  • Attach the door (not shown) to create a darkroom environment when imaging colonies with GFP fluorescence
​​​​​​Select from Several Light Sources

When colony samples require different light sources, the UVP ColonyDoc-It colony counter has various LED lighting settings. The white light and fluorescent sources visualize a wide array of bacterial, yeast and mold colonies with samples found in air, water, food, and cosmetics. The blue light is used for colonies stained with green fluorescent protein (GFP). Doors (detachable) create a darkroom environment when imaging colonies with GFP. Select from darkfield, epi and transillumination white light, or epi blue light.

Colony Counter Software

The UVP ColonyDoc-It software loads on your computer for camera control, image capture and analysis. The software enables manual and automatic colony counting. Users can define specific counting parameters including color differentiation, splitting or merging colonies, and identifying filters by group or size. Users can create templates for specific camera settings and analysis functions, allowing the same settings to be selected each time an experiment is run. The accurate count and statistical reporting functions enable researchers to immediately identify and determine experimental parameters that are critical for colony growth. The software generates statistics and displays the most critical information about the colony area, perimeter, average diameter and circularity. The data is easily exported into Excel.
