    3M™ Petrifilm™ Coliform Count Plates are sample-ready to identify coliform levels in - raw materials - in-process/finished food products - plant environment/equipment

    The 3M Petrifilm Coliform Count Plate is a sample ready culture medium system which contains Violet Red Bile (VRB) nutrients, a cold water soluble gelling agent, and a tetrazolium indicator that facilitates colony enumeration in food and beverage samples. These plates provide total coliform count information with confirmed results in just 24 hours. By eliminating subsequent confirmation steps required with most traditional reference methods, the 3M Petrifilm Coliform Count Plates can help increase productivity and reduce overall lab costs. Three Easy Steps Offer Fast, Easy to Interpret Results:* 1) Inoculate 3M Petrifilm Coliform 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. Confirmed coliforms are red colonies with associated gas bubbles. Results are fast and accurate. *Refer to instructions for use for additional information, and more details on validations. **AOAC OMA #986.33 and #989.10 The 3M Petrifilm Coliform Count Plate can also be read using the 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader which provides consistent, fast, automated reading and recording of results of 3M Petrifilm Plates (Aerobic Count, Rapid Aerobic Count, Coliform Count, E. coli/Coliform Count, Enterobacteriaceae Count and Select E. coli Count ) in 4 seconds.
