ScanLab II+ Climate Control

The ScanLab II+ CC  is designed to help raise your productivity. The system is designed for high throughput; you’re able to queue as many as 189 plates. The system is also fitted with a climate-controlled chamber for incubation.

The ScanLab II+ CC is designed with all the benefits of the MacroScan II and MacroScan II RL. It works with plates with 6, 12, 24, 48 or 96 wells. It automatically loads and photographs up to 189 plates, using Teach & Read application to analyze the resultant images and perform culture counts. However, the ScanLab II CC is also fitted with its own climate-controlled chamber.



Climate control

The ScanLab II+ CC allows you to queue up your plates in a Thermo Fischer CytoMat automated incubator. This puts you in charge of the atmosphere. Set the temperature to anything from 10°C up to 50°C. Raise the relative humidity as high as 98%, keep CO2 levels stable, and of course, lower assay variability. The incubator even has a drying platform to ensure that your sample is free from condensation prior to image capture.

The optics

The most accurate results come from the most accurate images. The ScanLab II+ CC uses a ZEISS stereomicroscopy camera that is completely digitally controlled. It takes high-definition images of your assays, perfect for raising the accuracy of your counts and ensuring every detail in every well is identifiable.

Automated microscopy

Light. Exposure time. Image resolution and image size, compactness, bulkiness and hundreds of other variables influence the image you create. That’s why the ScanLab II+ CC series records all the parameters under which an image was taken. The parameters in the digital file tell your system exactly how to recreate the same conditions, eliminating variables. As every aspect of the camera is either fixed or mechanically controlled, you benefit from pinpoint accuracy in all your assays.

RGB calibration

The ScanLab II+ CC uses mean red, blue and green density values to ensure perfect calibration. These parameters add to the accuracy of your images. Whether they’re preset or customised, they are stored in a file that you—or colleagues anywhere in the world—can call up when it’s time to validate your images or run further assays.


These calibration parameters are not just valid for your system, nor are they just for the ScanLab II+ CC. They will work with any MicroTechniX hardware, anywhere in the world. We offer you consistency across multiple systems. Assay validation has never been so easy.

Teach & Read for ultimate validation

Saving these parameters means you’re able to retrieve the file at a later date. This allows you to run the same assay, with the exact same parameters, on other images. And not just in your lab. The saved file is easily sent to any lab, anywhere in the world. A great way to ensure consistency. And the fastest, easiest and most accurate assay validation you’ve ever seen.
