  • ProtoCOL 3 is being used at a world renowned vaccine research facility for testing and designing new and existing vaccines against serious bacterial diseases. One of the ways scientists there test the efficacy of vaccines is to mix serum from vaccinated participants with bacteria in an SBA assay. They then check whether the antibody in the serum kill the bacteria by counting surviving colonies on a plate. Since using the ProtoCOL 3 they have found that having the computer take the image of their plate and automatically count the bacteria, they can do 10 times more work in a day.
