Our mission & values
MacroLab II EMMA is dedicated to the Microbiological Environmental Monitoring
Petri Dishes : handle plates of every supplier Ø 55mm, Ø 90mm, Ø 120mm locking lid – standard lid
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 plate surface, including the edges on the border (meniscus) enable to detect any colony on the Petri Dishes (ensuring NO False negative)
Everything is fully integrated in the system: including camera, computerized components, touchscreen. The same instrument for taking the picture, reading the plate and giving/recording results. No additional PC or software needed :
The MacroLab II EMMA is a powerhouse in the world of environmental monitoring. The EMMA—Environmental Monitoring MicroTechniX Apparatus—combines a unique, patent-pending optical system with powerful artificial intelligence software to raise the efficacy and efficiency of your assays to new levels.
MicroTechniX developed an entirely new optical system for the MacroLab II EMMA. In fact, the optics will be under review by the patent office until later in 2022. At that time, we will be able to disclose more of the unique benefits the system offers you.
Identical acquisition system (Optical & camera) and same Artificial intelligence for the reading of the results.
All pictures, set-up & validation performed on Macrolab EMMA can be transferred easily to upgrade AI on the ScanLab EMMA for a full automated system. All your efforts to integrate and validate this new technology are preserved.
Microtechnix developed EMMA optics to mainly acquire an image covering 100% of Petri Dishes surface
Meaning that even a contaminant (bacteria colony, mold,…) that grew on the meniscus (edge/border of PD) is “seen” by the MacroLab EMMA.
No false negative is allowed in Environmental Monitoring !
The calibration parameters you employ are saved in a digital file that’s valid for your system and any other MicroTechniX hardware, anywhere in the world. Just send the digital file to another lab for complete consistency and the simple, smooth assay validation you’ve always dreamt of.
Microtechnix Calibration methodology of imaging systems ensures reproducibility and repeatability of the result on each system AND between systems. Consistency is then ensured overtime and between lab or operators.
Combined with analysis powered by artificial intelligence, MacroLab II EMMA ensures a reproducible and consistent reading of Petri dishes avoiding false negative in Environmental Monitoring.
The MacroLab II EMMA uses artificial intelligence technology to raise the efficiency and efficacy of your assays. Exactly how does it work? The AI will recognise any agents of interest in your sample image. You then simply define each agent of interest. You tell the software whether an agent is anything from an air bubble to a bacterial colony. Or better yet, you tell it which specific type or sub-type of colony it is.
From your input, the AI creates a library of images for each type of agent you define. And it’s quite an extensive library. The AI develops fifty or so deviations for each image you provide. These deviations may be based on geometry (turning the image upside down or creating a mirror image, etc.), colour (brighter, darker, black-and-white, etc.), with pixels removed to suggest noise or occlusions in the image, or any number of other visual changes that are known to occur.
The AI compares future agents of interest with library images. If it achieves a certain degree of consistency in the images, it is able to accurately classify a new agent without any further input from you.
Welcome to the next level of automation in laboratory testing.
AI method development is a end-to-end process requiring several steps :
