    New Research Supports Effectiveness and Accuracy of IUL Flash & Go Colony Counter

    An independent study recently published by Fort Valley State University demonstrated that the IUL Flash & Go automated colony counter is an effective, accurate alternative to the standard method of colony counting.

    Moreover the study claims the use of the colony counter increased the overall efficiency of research operations by significantly reducing the time devoted to conventional manual plate count and made tasks easier for data manipulation, analysis and interpretation.
