Although smaller and simpler than their eukaryotic counterparts, bacteria are an incredibly diverse group of organisms that come in multiple shapes, sizes, and arrangements. Colony counting is a highly variable and unreliable, as it is only an estimate of the viable cells present. Even expensive flow cytometers and laser scanning cytometers register each particle, single or clustered, as a single event. The QUANTOM Tx™ Microbial Cell Counter is an image-based, automated cell counter that can detect individual bacterial cells in mere minutes. Its novel bacteria-optimized cell detection software can count individual bacterial cells in even the tightest clusters.

  • Laila Phillips

    Sinai Hospital Division of Gastroenterology

    The QUANTOM Tx is extremely user-friendly with a beautiful, intuitive interface.
    The entire process from start to finish is very quick, so we were able to gather a lot of data in a short amount of time. We mastered the staining protocol very quickly, and even the more inexperienced members of our research group were able to use the machine properly with ease. We were blown away by the quality of the images we received, even in mixed cultures of bacteria gathered from various biological samples!

  • Violetta Medik, MS

    Evelo Biosciences

    Great results. I am very happy with the instrument.
    The instrument is very easy to use. The sample prep is quick and the the replicates are pretty tight. I used it for counting very small cells, as well as bacteria that grow in chains or clusters and the software does a great job analyzing the image. I compared the results to other methods and the results are spot on. Overall, I am very happy with the purchase.
