    Introducing 3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Aerobic Count Plates - Results in just 24 hours!

    • Aerobic plate count is the “go-to” indicator test for measuring the microorganism levels in food and food production areas and helps companies ensure quality and reduce food spoilage. So getting fast, accurate counts is critical for making time-sensitive decisions.

    FASTER Results Drive:

      • Quicker quality control decision-making and corrective action  
      • Raw material release decisions
      • Environmental cleaning and production decisions
      • Product release decisions

      3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Aerobic Count Plates are fast, accurate, sample-ready culture medium systems. They contain nutrients, a coldwater-soluble gelling agent, and a dual-sensing indicator technology that allows you to easily count colonies in just 24 hours for most food matrices.

      Faster results and less labor mean more time and resources for monitoring your processes, ensuring tighter process control and improving product quality.

      • Helps prevent the costly retesting and delayed results often caused by spreader colonies.
      • Proven as reliable as the SMA plate method

    Faster results. Smarter decisions. Better process control.

    • Plate comparision - 3M Petrifilm RAC vs Agar
      • Fast results. Get accurate results after just 24 hours incubation (excluding dairy powders). 
      • Easy interpretation. Unique technology resists distortion often caused by spreader colonies. 
      • Easy to use. Added foam barrier around the inoculation area makes the process easier.
      • Broad performance. Can be used on all foods. 
      • Versatile. Ideal for air, swab or surface contact environmental testing.

    3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Aerobic Count Plates (RAC) feature technology that facilitates colony enumeration in just 24 hours for most food matrices / environmental samples and resists distortion caused by spreader colonies.

    Aerobic count bacteria are present in a variety of food matrices and serve as indicators for food spoilage. Getting accurate aerobic bacteria counts in your raw materials, finished product and production environment are critical to making time-sensitive decisions that impact process control, cleaning decisions and, ultimately, product quality and safety. 3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Aerobic Count Plates are a sample-ready, culture medium system, which contain nutrients, a coldwater-soluble gelling agent, and a dual-sensing indicator technology that facilitate colony enumeration in 24 hours for most food matrices and environmental samples. Proven as reliable as the SMA plate method, 3M Petrifilm Rapid Aerobic Count Plates help agar users avoid costly retesting and delayed results due to interpretation issues caused by spreader colonies.
