3M Rapid Coliform Plates  

Petriflm™ Rapid Coliform Count Plates

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.

 

Petriflm™ High-Sensitivity Coliform Count Plate

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ High-Sensitivity Coliform Count Plate accommodates 5 mL samples and detection of low levels of confirmed coliforms in 24 hours. This allows a 1-coliform-per-gram sensitivity if a 1:5 dilution of product is made. A 2-coliform-per-gram sensitivity is achieved if a 1:10 dilution is used. Whether testing milk, ice cream, cheese, or other food products, testing labs can benefit from the labor savings of 3M Petrifilm Plates. These plates reduce overall testing costs and allow producers to easily conform to higher sensitivity standards.

3M Aqua Coliform  

Petriflm™ Aqua Coliform Count Plates

3M™ Petrifilm™ Aqua Coliform Count Plates are sample-ready media plates used to measure coliform levels in bottled water. 3M™ Petrifilm™ Aqua Coliform Count Plates deliver reliable testing results for your bottled water. Each plate contains a water-soluble gelling agent, nutrients and indicators in a dry, shelf-stable format. The indicator dye colors all colonies red, and the top film traps the gas produced by the coliforms. Gas trapped around red coliform colonies indicates confirmed colonies. Confirmed coliform results in 24 hours.

 

Petrifilm™ E.coli & Coliform Count Plate

3M™ Petrifilm™ E. coli/Coliform Count Plates provide a cost-effective, convenient and reliable confirmation method for testingequipment, 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.
