Fast Counter

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Fast Counter is an iPhone/iPod touch app designed to help scientists to quickly and efficiently count bacterial colonies.
With Fast Counter’s gorgeous interface and user friendly navigation, it has never been easier to conduct experiments in a laboratory.

Warning: This software should not be relied upon for medical purposes.


Manually counting bacterial colonies on agar dishes is time-consuming and scientists can spend several hours a day on this task. Now, with Fast Counter you benefit from an app that was designed to be fast, user friendly and beautiful. Whether you are a PhD, researcher, engineer, student or technician, you could save a lot of time while conducting biology experiments in your laboratory.

To use the Fast Counter app simply center a Petri dish on the screen, take a picture and tap on colonies you identify. You can also toggle to “live” mode to automatically detect bacterial colonies in real-time. The saved results can be analyzed later or shared by e-mail or Twitter with colleagues.

Key Features:

● Automatically count bacterial colonies using high performance algorithms
● “Live” mode to count in real-time thanks to augmented reality
● Fine tune colony detection using “threshold” and “debug” mode
● Works with dark colonies on clear background or vice versa
● Count manually by tapping on colonies
● Zoom and pan on still images
● “Torch” mode to improve image quality (iPhone 4 and newer)
● Save and manage your results
○ Analyze and modify saved data
○ Share results by e-mail or Twitter

Don't bother

This has to be by far the worst app ever. Unless you can't count, don't bother wasting your money since this app requires you to TAP on every single bacteria. At least on live mode

I wasted $3. Don't waste yours.

Photo mode requires you to take a photo and count the colonies on your phone; I might as well count the colonies directly on the plate.
Live mode does not work.
Pretty disappointing:(
