Petrifilm™ Rapid Aerobic Count Plates

Faster results. Smarter Decision. Better Process Control.

 Rapid Aerobic Petrifilm with Incubation.

Aerobic count bacteria are present in a variety of food matrices and serve as indicators for food spoilage. Getting accurate aerobic bacteria counts in raw materials, finished product and the production environment are critical to making time-sensitive decisions that impact process control, cleaning decisions and ultimately product quality and safety. 

3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Aerobic Plates are a fast, accurate, sample-ready culture medium system. The plates contain nutrients, a cold water soluble gelling agent, and a dual-sensing indicator technology that allows for easier counting of colonies in just 24 hours for most food matrices. Blue and red indicator dyes in the plate colour the colonies. All colonies regardless of their size or colour intentisty should be counted. To assist with estimated enumerations gridelines are visible on the plates when used with a backlight. The plates may also be read using the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader which provides consistent, fast, automated reading & recording of results in just 4 seconds.
