With the effects of impact on the environment becoming more apparent, individuals should be looking for ways to ‘do their bit’ for the environment, in work as well as at home. Petrifilm Plates from 3M Microbiology can help save energy and reduce waste in the laboratory.
Petrifilm Plates come in an easy, ready-to-use format, eliminating the need for in-house media preparation, thereby saving energy. The compact size of Petrifilm Plates take less space allowing better utilisation of the lab space and save energy by using a smaller incubator.
The compact design of Petrifilm Plates also reduces waste. Petrifilm Plates produce about a quarter of the volume of waste that one would get from traditional petri-dishes and use less packaging as well. Less waste means more energy saving as one does not need to run as many autoclave cycles to make the waste safe.
