The ultimate in food sanitation and process verification, the Peel Plate Colony Counter II counts, stores, exports, and archives data for all Charm Peel Plate test types.

LAWRENCE, Mass., Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Charm Sciences, Inc. is pleased to introduce the new Peel PlateŽ

Colony Counter II, a new model that counts both 1 mL and 5 mL Peel Plates. The Peel Plate Colony Counter II is a customizable plug-and-play system that counts colonies on Peel Plate Microbial Tests. The system stores plate images, exports to SQL databases, and generates reports to import into a LIMS system.

The Peel Plate Colony Counter II offers a high-resolution camera with plate nests for both 1 mL and 5 mL Peel Plates tests. Some users need the higher sensitivity provided by the 5 mL plates to meet their regulatory requirements or their higher environmental sanitation standards. The new model also has a larger screen, four USB hubs, and HDMI output. These features create a high-quality user experience that is also simple and intuitive.

The new model is a stand-alone unit with an internal computer. It produces count averages that are accurate within 10% of an experienced microbiologist's visual count. Users are able to customize channel accuracy by matrix with color, size, edge rounding, and lighting. For each test result, the Colony Counter stores raw images, processed images, and full test result information. Examples of information that can be stored include: Peel Plate test type and size, operator ID, sample ID, date and time of the results, count, dilution, and the result in CFU/g. This information can be reviewed, downloaded in real-time, exported into an excel spreadsheet, or directly transferred to an SQL database or other data management system.

"We worked with our customers to provide the ultimate user experience," said Paul Graham, Director of Electronic Research and Development. "The Peel Plate Colony Counter II is versatile and easy to use with multiple interface ports and options, fast count times, and 'fixed plate positioning' for accurate counting of all Peel Plate types and sizes. The SQL and network features also simplify LIMS and ERP data incorporation."

This new Peel Plate Colony Counter II counts a portfolio of microbial tests: aerobic count, coliform count, E. coli and coliform count, yeast and mold count, Enterobacteriaceae count, Staphylococcus Aureus, and heterotrophic count. High volume sample (5mL) plates are available for coliform, E. coli and coliform count, yeast and mold count, and Enterobacteriaceae count.
