3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid 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™ Rapid E. coli / Coliform Count (REC) Plate is a selective and differential sample ready culture medium system which contains proprietary nutrients, a cold water soluble gelling agent, 5 bromo 4 chloro 3 indolyl D glucuronide (BCIG) an indicator of glucuronidase activity, and a tetrazolium indicator that facilitates colony enumeration. The 3M Petrifilm REC Plate is used for the enumeration of Escherichia coli (E. coli) and coliforms in the food and beverage industries. These plates provide both E. coli and total coliform count information with confirmed in just 18 24 hours. By eliminating subsequent confirmation steps required with most traditional reference methods, the 3M Petrifilm Rapid E. coli/Coliform Count Plates can help increase productivity and reduce overall lab costs. Three Steps Offer Fast and Easy to Interpret Results: 1) Inoculate. 2) Incubate. 3) Interpret: Review the interpretation guide 3M Petrifilm Plates have demonstrated consistent performance that has been cited globally with more than 200 certificates, recognitions, validations, and peer review publications (Link to validations section)
