3M™ Petrifilm™ Aerobic Count Plate

3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Coliform Count Plates
petrifilm-aerobic-count-plate-sell-sht-a

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Aerobic Count Plate is a time-saving, sample-ready plate designed to determine total aerobic bacteria populations.

 

A built-in grid facilitates counting colonies, helping to provide fast, precise and consistent results. Each 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate contains a water-soluble gelling agent, nutrients and indicator — all the components needed for microbial growth with no agar preparation required.

The 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate provides total aerobic count in as little as 48 hours. A red indicator dye in the plate colors all colonies red for better contrast and easier colony counting. The red colonies are also easily distinguished from opaque food particles that can cause confusion when using other plating methods.

In addition, 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plates can be used to aerobically or anaerobically enumerate lactic acid bacteria in food and environmental samples.

3M_logo_wordmark.png

3M™ Petrifilm™ E. coli/Coliform Count Plates provide a cost-effective, convenient and reliable method for testing equipment, raw materials, food products and manufacturing environmental samples.

The 3M Petrifilm E. coli/Coliform Count Plate is a sample-ready-culture-medium system which contains Violet Red Bile (VRB) nutrients, a cold-water-soluble gelling agent, an indicator of glucuronidase activity (BCIG), and a tetrazolium indicator that facilitates colony enumeration in food and beverage samples.

These plates provide both E. coli and total Coliform Count information with confirmed results in just 24-48 hours. By eliminating subsequent confirmation steps required with most traditional reference methods, the 3M Petrifilm E. coli/Coliform Count Plates can help increase productivity and reduce overall lab costs.

3M_logo_wordmark.png

This 3M Petrifilm Yeast and Mold Count Plate is a sample-ready-culture medium system which contains nutrients supplmented with antibiotics, a cold-water-soluble gelling agent, and an indicator that facilitates yeast and mold enumeration.

 

Yeasts are easily differentiated from molds on the plate:

  • Yeasts are typically indicated by small, blue-green colonies with defined edges and no foci.

  • Molds are indicated by large, variably-colored colonies with diffuse edges and center foci.

3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Coliform Count Plates are designed to provide fast, accurate results in detecting coliform contamination.

Coliform colonies may begin to appear at 6 hours of incubation as discrete yellow zones indicating colony forming units (CFUs). Presumptive coliforms may be be recorded at 14 hours. Confirmed coliforms will appear as red colonies associated with gas after 8 – 24 hours of incubation.

3M_logo_wordmark.png

Yeasts and molds can grow in a wide range of conditions on your raw materials, products and process environment, making them difficult to control. Complicating matters is the five-day incubation period required by traditional agar methods.

3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plates simplify and accelerate detection. Featuring a new indicator technology that makes colonies easier to interpret, these completely sample-ready plates return results in just 48 hours.

  • Proven as reliable as DRBC and DG-18 spread plate methods, as well as acidified PDA and YGC agar pour plate methods
  • Can be used with both low and high water activity foods

  • Eliminates the need for the labor intensive, multiple plate spread plate technique

  • Versatility for air, swab or surface contact environmental sampling
