Eddy Jet 2W - Spiral Plater

The Best Spiral Plater just got Better! Quicker, Quieter and more Robust!

Manufacturer: IUL S.A.
SKU: 90003800

The all new Eddy Jet 2W Spiral Plating System is a large color screen touch screen fully programmable spiral inoculation instrument with accuracy and reproducibility of greater than 99%. The Eddy Jet 2W Spiral Plater uses a unique gamma-Irradiated disposable micro-syringe for each new sample, eliminating cross-contamination and the need for a vacuum source or washing steps.

Since the samples come in contact only with the disposable low cost micro-syringe throughout the process, there is absolutely no risk of carryover of sanitizing chemicals, such as hypochlorite.

The tips are supplied with fully traceable quality control documentation. These sterile, precise micro-syringes (with opening size of 0.7mm) are your keys to confidence that you’ll get an accurate inoculation and no contamination on every plate that you process with the Eddy Jet 2W Spiral Plater.

Significant savings can be made in material costs and workers' time by using the Eddy Jet 2W Spiral Plater. Plates are processed in well under 1 minute; no time consuming washing cycle; no time consuming preparation and replacement of washing chemical solutions; no time consuming maintenance of a vacuum pumping system; no down time due to vacuum failure.

Check how Spiral plates can be counted using Manual colony counter or automatic colony counter - The SphereFlash® - The SphereFlash® counts the majority of colonies on the various medias. Its high-resolution color camera can detect and count colonies of approx. 1/450 inch (0.07mm). The new patented illumination device enables processing of any media type, including transparent/opaque agar without interference from ambient light source as the sphere goes down and creates an isolated environment. The SphereFlash® automated colony counter modular approach enables laboratories to automate their colony counting processes, inhibition zone measuring, and upgrade them to a higher level of sophistication as necessary, within a budget.

Additional Resources


  • During the onset of the Covid pandemic, we were not able to obtain many of the supplies needed to run our instruments. Having the Eddy Jet Plater and the Sphere Flash Colony Counter fully operational allowed us to continue critical microbial testing despite the unexpected interruptions in supplies and workforce.

  • We recently switched from another brand of spiral plater to the Eddy Jet. While doing our correlation study we ran both units simultaneously and quickly noticed that we were starting the 3rd sample on the Eddy Jet while the 1st sample finished on the other brand. With our sample volume, this equates to a significant time savings

  • The Eddy Jet is the most user friendly Spiral Plater I have ever used. Unlike other units, we don ' t need to think twice before operating it. The disposable syringes and not having a vacuum pump are great plus for us. We like its functionality very much.

  • We had it up and running within an hour of delivery. It arrived with several clinical samples, all of which were plated on the new machine. Everything was fairly intuitive even without reading any directions! We have used every day since. It takes about the same length of time as our old machine, but is much simpler and more fool proof even for complete novices (new students in the lab).

  • We have implemented Neutec Group’s Eddy Jet 2 spiral plater and Sphere automated colony counter in our antimicrobial product testing and water testing applications. This has saved significant time compared to manual plating and counting processes. These instruments have also provided improved accuracy over manual methods.
