Simplified method to automatically count bacterial colony forming unit

Academic Article


  • Bacterial colony counting is a significant technical hurdle for vaccine studies as well as various microbiological studies. We now show that an automated colony counter can process images obtained with a digital camera or document scanner and that any laboratory can efficiently have bacterial colonies enumerated by sending the images to a laboratory with a colony counter via internet. © 2005 Elsevier B.V.
