Cyclone™ Automated Diluting, Plating, & Pouring System

Fully automatic walk-away microbiology quality control system!


Cyclone™ is a fully automated innovative walk-away system, for pour plating, spiral plating and spreading of liquified samples for the food safety industry. It is an all in one fully robotic, liquid handling system, agar plate pourer, diluting and automatic plating system. Manufacturers in industries such as food, baby food, and cosmetic companies - have implemented Cyclone™ to standardize their quality control and service laboratories have chosen this automation to increase their productivity. This modular platform allows the complete protocol customization of liquid handling, including container type, inoculation volume, dilution sets, plating technique, and agar medium. 

This automated system complements very well our satnad alone automated solutions for the microbiology lab and offers a new level of work flow alignment and labor reduction. 

Is your lab ready? 

Size doesn't matter! Every industrial microbiology lab can enjoy the benefits of this unique piece of automation. 

Cyclone™ Benefits


  • Cyclone™ reproduces microbiology tests with a standard and high level of quality. Being designed around GMPs and ISOs regulations, it allows a swift integration into the lab workflow


  • Cyclone™ takes over tasks such as serial dilutions, plating and media pouring, eliminating delays and inefficiencies when completed manually or automated separately 

Data Integrity 

  • Cyclone™ ensures traceability of all samples and plates, a time consuming activity, subject to error. Audit trails are always available, if needed

Cost Reduction

  • Cyclone™ reduces HR costs, automating tedious labor intensive tasks. In addidtion, standardization leads to operational savings, by expediting the batch release process and minimizing the risk of product recalls

Low Maintenance Requirements and Remote Accessibility Minimize Downtime

  • The Cyclone™ has an impressive 95% uptime and requires only minutes of maintenance each day. on-site training classes and support options to ensure the system’s continual operation are provided
 Additional Modules for a Customized Solution
  • Cyclone™ is designed as a modular solution for the Food Safety laboratory, where optional modules can be added at any time:
    -Multi-Media Module
    -Smart Incubation and Imaging Module:
    -Artificial Intelligence Driven Plate Interpretation Module:
    We help you move through your automation journey whether it is a new Cyclone™ sample processor, or full laboratory automation using smart incubators and artificial intelligence software, or even a multi-line solution.
