Protocol 3 automated colony counter

Synbiosis, a long-established, expert manufacturer of automated microbiological systems, is pleased to announce its ProtoCOL 3 automated colony counter is being used at a major teaching hospital in London.

It is being used to accurately track the spread of carbapenem-resistant bacteria superbugs.

Microbiologists in the infection control group at the hospital are using ProtoCOL 3 to count colonies of carbapenem-resistant and extended-
spectrum beta-lactamase producing bacteria, including E. coli and Klebsiella spp. isolated from patients’ stools cultured on a range of different selective and chromogenic plates.
