|Title:||COLONY INSPECTION PROGRAM, COLONY INSPECTION DEVICE, AND COLONY INSPECTION METHOD|
An acquisition section (111) acquires counting data from each terminal device via an interface and stores same in a storage unit. A counting section (112) counts the number of colonies contained in a culture dish on the basis of the respective culture dish image that is stored as image data. The counting section (112) also calculates an image feature value for each culture dish image. A calculation section (113) calculates the degree of similarity between corresponding culture dish images on the basis of the image feature values for the respective culture dish images that are stored as image feature value data. An assessment section (114) assesses whether or not the inspected culture dish is contaminated with microbes on the basis of the difference in numbers of colonies between the culture dishes and the degree of similarity between the culture dish images. The assessment section (114) outputs an alarm when said assessment section determines that the inspected culture dish has been contaminated with microbes.
