3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate features a new indicator technology that makes colonies easier to interpret. This sample-ready-culture-medium system provides results in as little as 48 hours of incubation time.
Yeast and molds can grow in a wide range of conditions in raw materials, finished products and production environments, making them difficult to control. The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate method is faster and easier than the traditional agar method that requires a five-day incubation period. This plate features a new indicator technology that makes colonies easier to interpret. This sample-ready-culture-medium system provides results in as little as 48 hours of incubation time.
Proven as reliable as the DRBC and DG-18 spread plate methods as well as the acidified PDA and YGC agar pour plate methods, 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plates also enhance productivity by eliminating the inoculation of multiple spread plates, the addition of antibiotics or tartaric acid, and the agar preparation process altogether. Faster results provide more time to monitor processes and ensure tighter process controls along with a higher quality product.
3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate has been awarded Official Methods of Analysis (OMA) #2014.05 for Select food and NF VALIDATION certificate: 3M 01/13-07/14 for All human food products, Pet food, Animal feed and Environmental products (primary production sample excepted) by AFNOR Certification.
Three Easy Steps Offer Fast, Easy-to-Interpret Results:*
1) Inoculate – 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plates are easy to inoculate. Lift the top film and add sample.
2) Incubate – The space saving design minimizes incubator space requirements.
3) Interpret – Count the colonies.
*Refer to instructions for use for additional information, and more details on validations.
