Product Details

This compact, desktop unit accurately reads and records plate counts, saving critical time to further improve your productivity.

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader processes six widely used 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates: Aerobic Count, Rapid Aerobic Count, Coliform Count, E. coli/Coliform Count, Enterobacteriaceae Count and Select E. coli Count. After individual 3M Petrifilm Plates are inoculated and incubated, they can be easily loaded into the 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader where they are electronically read and interpreted in about 4 seconds. Thoroughly tested across a broad range of food types, 3M’s software enabled technology facilitates compliance by automatically storing test data as well as individual plate images on file. The 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader also automates logging of 128 symbology bar code labels, and allows details related to the technician, food type, food lot and dilution schemes to be electronically stored rather than transcribed by hand. Data can also be easily exported to laboratory information management systems and other reporting tools. Includes the Unit, Software CD, Installation and Use CD, System Verification Cards(3), USB Cord, Universal Power Supply and Power Supply Cord.

Fast results in just four seconds per plate.

Convenient double sided stethoscope with 3M’s ‘tunable technology’ which allows you to hear low and high frequency sounds by simply applying light or firm pressure to the chestpiece

Aerobic Count results as soon as 48 hours.

Plates are sample-ready, eliminating the time-consuming, cumbersome step of preparing media/agar dishes.

Can be used with the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader for consistent, fast, automated reading and recording of results.

This plate has been awarded Official Methods of Analysis (OMA) #986.33 for Milk (OMA) #989.10 for Dairy products (OMA) #990.12 for Food NF VALIDATION certificate: 3M 01/01-09/89 by AFNOR Certification for All human food products, pet food, industrial environmental samples.

  • Food processors and Contract labs worldwide trust 3M Petrifilm Plates to provide accurate, efficient, consistent results.

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Aerobic Count Plate is a time-saving, sample-ready plate designed to determine total aerobic bacteria populations.

A built-in grid facilitates counting colonies, helping to provide fast, precise and consistent results. Each 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate contains a water-soluble gelling agent, nutrients and indicator — all the components needed for microbial growth with no agar preparation required.

The 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate provides total aerobic count in as little as 48 hours. A red indicator dye in the plate colors all colonies red for better contrast and easier colony counting. The red colonies are also easily distinguished from opaque food particles that can cause confusion when using other plating methods.

In addition, 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plates can be used to aerobically or anaerobically enumerate lactic acid bacteria in food and environmental samples.

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 red colonies; a built-in grid simplifies counting, giving you fast, precise, and consistent results.
  • *Refer to instructions for use for additional information, and more details on validations.

    The 3M Petrifilm Aerobic 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.

    The 3M Petrifilm Plate Advantage

    In today’s environment of heightened focus on food safety and increasingly stringent quality requirements, labs are under pressure to provide tests that are fast, reliable and consistently accurate. 3M Petrifilm Plates have demonstrated consistent performance that has been cited globally with more than 200 certificates, recognitions, validations, and peer-review publications.

Coliform results in 24 hours.

Plates are sample-ready, eliminating the time-consuming, cumbersome step of preparing media/agar dishes.

Unique plate design to trap the gas produce by coliform

This plate has been awarded Official Methods of Analysis (OMA) #996.02 for Dairy products and NF VALIDATION certificate: 3M-01/7-03/99 for Human food products by AFNOR Certification.

Food processors and contract labs worldwide trust 3M Petrifilm Plates to provide accurate, efficient, consistent results.

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 Petrifilm High-Sensitivity Coliform Count plates may be especially well-suited for use in facilities producing dairy products, where regulations and strict internal quality standards demand a high-sensitivity test that can deliver results quickly and accurately.

Three Easy Steps Offer Fast, Easy-to-Interpret Results:*

  • 1) Inoculate – 3M Petrifilm High Sensitivity 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. An indicator dye in the plate colors Gram-negative colonies red and the top film traps gas produced by the coliforms. Simply count red colonies that are associated with gas bubbles as coliforms.
  • *Refer to instructions for use for additional information, and more details on validations.
