The 3M Petrifilm Rapid Aerobic Count Plate can detect aerobic bacteria counts in just 24 hours for most food matrices. It offers technology that reduces the impact of spreader colonies and a simplified inoculation area to drive greater efficiency and reduce costly retesting and delayed results. Plate also leverages a dual-sensing indicator technology for easier enumeration of colonies in raw material, in-process, and finished product food testing as well as environmental air, swab, or surface contact testing. The test has received certification from the AOAC International PTM program inserts. 3M Food Safety, 800-328-6553, www.3M.com/foodsafety.
