Meet BactoBox®

Accurate bacteria counts in minutes

The development of novel antibiotics and biocides requires bacterial test suspensions with well-defined concentrations.
BactoBox can provide this answer immediately with no need for calibration curves so you can move swiftly to the actual experiment, and speed up your antimicrobial development processes.


At the core of BactoBox is a novel impedance flow cytometry technology developed by SBT instruments, which quantifies bacteria by electrically detecting the cell walls of individual bacteria cells.

How it works

Designed for ease of use

Bacteria measurements by pressing a button

WEB_wScreen_SBT_BactoBox_01

We designed BactoBox to help users get fast bacteria measurements where they are needed: Close to the action. It has a small footprint to fit in most places and is very user-friendly to avoid extensive training while still delivering accurate total bacteria counts in just a few minutes.

To measure bacteria just grab a sample, dilute it below 10⁶ cells, insert it in BactoBox, and press measure — simple as that. The technology then automatically identifies and counts bacteria and delivers the bacteria concentration. 

 

The core technology

Measuring bacteria using impedance flow cytometry

BactoBox® measures bacteria using Impedance flow cytometry

SBT_Explainer-03

BactoBox employs a new approach to bacteria measurements called impedance flow cytometry. Inside a microfluidic flow-cell, bacteria in the sample are detected and distinguished from particles and killed cells based on their electrical properties. It differs from existing technologies by being both fast, accurate, easy-to-use and affordable.
