Choose from 4 models:

easySpiral Automatic plater

easySpiral Pro Automatic plater

easySpiral Pro Milk Automatic plater

easySpiral Dilute Automatic dilutor and plater


The Spiral method

With the Spiral method, increase your analysis capabilities: without intermediate dilutions, perform standardized automatic plating with a counting range from 100 to 1 × 107 CFU/mL on 1 single Petri dish!

Consumables: savings up to 75%

The exponential plating mode with easySpiral reduces your consumable budget and waste volumes. You will enjoy more space in your lab too! The easySpiral plater has no specific consumable needs.

One touch plating

Plate easily and quickly your 55, 90 and 150 mm Petri dishes. Choose from 4 plating modes: exponential, constant, circle and pour.

Exponential mode

The exponential mode is a plating in surface with a decreasing surface concentration. Plate 50 µL, 100 µL, 200 µL or program a customizable volume. Obtain a countable Petri dish from 100 to 1 x 1012 CFU/mL

Constant mode

The constant mode is a homogenous surface deposition plating. Plate 50 µL, 100 µL, 200 µL or program a customizable volume. Colony counting is then easy because there are no colonies on the edges of the Petri dish.

Circle mode

The circle mode is plating 3 or 6 dilutions in surface on 1 Petri dish. The volumes are 10 µL for the inner circle, 16 µL for the middle circle and 25 µL for the outer circle. Great savings on Petri dishes!

Pour mode

The pour mode is a homogeneous deposition in pour plate mode. easySpiral Dilute deposits one sample drop at the bottom of an empty Petri dish. Then the user adds the molten agar on top and homogenizes it with the sample.
You can plate 50 µL, 100 µL, 200 µL or program your personalized volume. Colony counting is easier in case of invasive colonies. Pharmacopea compliant.


High accuracy glass syringe

Typical accuracy of glass syringe is 0.5 %.
Higher accuracy than an ordinary pipette and no more pipet calibration.

Automatic disinfection

Overflow technology cleaning system and stylus disinfection. A light is activated in case of empty disinfecting liquid.
PATENTED

High speed automation

The fast rotating arm adapts itself to all types of agar without risks of ploughing. It makes it possible to obtain a plating in 134 seconds (disinfection + 5 dilutions + 1 plating of a dilution).
PATENTED

Traceability ensured with dataLink

All the sample data, from plating (volume, dilution, plating mode ...) to automatic colony counting (lighting settings) are set on the Datamatrix label.
