Our mission & values
EMMA can standardize and automate your Microbiological Environmental Monitoring.
Our (patent-pending) optics system captures ultra-precise images and uses artificial intelligence to analyze your samples. Perfect for environmental monitoring assays. This unique optical acquisition system allows to acquire high resolution image of 100% of the plate surface, including the wall (meniscus) of the Petri dish, and standardize your documentation process to ensure 100% data integrity.
EMMA is a fully integrated system: including camera, barcode reader and the computer:
EMMA is revolutionizing the world of environmental monitoring. EMMA utilises a unique, patent-pending optical system to generate images of petri dishes that cover 100% of the surface whilst keeping the lid on. In combination with powerful artificial intelligence software enabling automated detection of positive and negative Petri dishes, CFU counting and a software platform that is CFR21 part 11 compliant, EMMA is ready to take your data integrity to a higher level and optimise your workflow.
MicroTechniX developed an entirely new optical system for EMMA ensuring the walls of a Petri dish can be imaged with the lid on. A high-resolution camera in combination with an application specific lens allows to image 100% of the Petri dish surface, including the walls, whilst keeping the lid on. This approach allows to generate high quality images for downstream analysis by AI or an operator.
The calibration parameters you employ are saved in a digital file that’s valid for your system and any other Microtechnix imaging device, anywhere in the world. Just send the digital file to another lab for complete consistency and a simple, smooth assay validation. Microtechnix calibration methodology of imaging systems ensures reproducibility and repeatability of the result between systems. Consistency is then over time, between labs and operators. Combined with analysis powered by artificial intelligence, EMMA ensures a reproducible and consistent reading of Petri dishes avoiding false negatives in Environmental Monitoring.
