The 3M Petrifilm yeast and mould count plate, available from 3M Microbiology , can differentiate and enumerate yeast and mould in 3-5 days.
The 3M Petrifilm yeast and mould count plate identifies food borne yeast and mould in food products and the food processing environment. Yeast are easily differentiated from moulds on the plate.
The 3M Petrifilm yeast and mould count plate offers fast and accurate results in 3-5 days with three easy steps:
- Inoculate - 3M Petrifilm yeast and mould count plates are easy to inoculate. Lift the top film and add sample,
- Incubate - The space saving design maximizes incubator space.
- Enumerate - Yeast are typically indicated by small, blue-green colonies with defined edges and no foci. Moulds are indicated by large, variably-coloured colonies with diffuse edges and centre foci. A built in grid on these Petrifilm Plates facilitates counting colonies, giving you fast, precise and accurate results.
