In the current economic climate, businesses are looking for ways to reduce spend and save money where possible. Petrifilm Plates from 3M Microbiology help to improve laboratory efficiency and reduce operating costs. Petrifilm Plates come in an easy, ready-to-use format, removing material, energy and, more substantially, labour costs associated with the lengthy procedure of media preparation.
Quality control is also simplified as each batch of Petrifilm plates comes complete with a Quality Assurance Certificate from the 3M ISO 9002 certified manufacturing facility. These benefits free staff to work in other areas of the laboratory, so a higher throughput of testing can be achieved.
The compact size of Petrifilm Plates leads to cost savings in storage, equipment, waste disposal and allows better utilisation of lab space. Large batch availability simplifies stock control, ordering and record keeping, once again streamlining otherwise laborious tasks. The unique Petrifilm Plate format offers fast, simple and reliable testing, in turn, saving valuable laboratory hours and improving working flexibility.
