Perceptive Instruments Ltd., founded in 1990, develops, manufactures and supplies image analysis and data processing solutions for many areas of scientific research and industry.
The Direct Epifluorescent Filter Technique involves capturing bacterial cells on the surface of polycarbonate membrane filters, staining with a fluorochrome such as acridine orange, and visualisation using epifluorescence microscopy. Enumeration of bacteria is greatly facilitated by image analysis and using the Sorcerer Image Analysis system.
The high speed count and feature measurement capabilities of Sorcerer Image Analysis are ideal for the Direct Epifluorescent Filter Technique. Fluorescing cells are viewed in real time by Sorcerer’s high sensitivity CCD video camera and viable & non-viable cells readily distinguished by virtue of contrast differences.
Different parts of the membrane filter are systematically scanned with bacterial counts transferred directly to Microsoft Excel for customised data processing and reporting.
