The new 3M Petrifilm Aqua Plates for beverage manufacturers are now available from Arrow Scientific . These bacteria testing tools have been designed to identify four of the most common contaminants in beverages: heterotrophic count, coliform, yeast and mold, and enterobacteriaceae.
These aqua plates can be used as an alternative to the tradition bacteria testing agar petri dishes that produce excessive waste of product, employee time and refrigeration space. Petrifilm offers a reliable and simple way to ensure quality, test products safely and streamline a company’s testing process. Extensive research has also found that the plate performs well with a membrane filter place on it.
Petrifilm bacteria testing aqua plates are most widely used in the bottled water industry but the new 3M Petifilms are just as suited to soft drink, tea, and carbonated drink manufacturers, and most other areas of food safety and environmental testing.
