The 3M Petrifilm Yeast and Mould Count Plates from Arrow Scientific allow users to identify accurate yeast and mould populations in 3-5 days. The yeast and mould count plates have also been proven as dependable as Antibiotic-supplemented Potato Dextrose Agar (APDA), acidified potato dextrose agar and antibiotic-supplemented plate count agar.
The 3M Petrifilm Yeast and Mould Count Plates deliver accurate results using just three steps:
- Innoculate – testers lift the top film and add sample
- Incubate – space saving design maximises incubator space
- Enumerate – yeast are typically identified by the development of small, blue-green colonies with defined edges and no foci. Molds are indicated by large, variably-colored colonies with diffuse edges. The built-in grid makes counting colonies easy.
