BioPaddles® Colony ID™ Lite allows the user to presumptively identify microbe colonies by comparing them to a library of 80 standard images covering five microhabitats (AIR, WATER, SOIL, SURFACE, and FOOD) on nine paddle agar types. The image series includes side views and top views at the colony and cell level.

Resource materials include instructions for use of the BioPaddles® Lite, detailed fact sheets for each agar type and microbe genera (along with selected species), including microhabitat preferences, procedures for common microbiological techniques, and examples of microbe growth on BioPaddles® from a variety of microhabitat sources.

In BioPaddles® Colony ID™ Lite, there is a direct link to the AppStore for upgrading to the full system of BioPaddles® Colony ID™.
