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.
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.
Our goal is to respond to your request within 24 hours. Some questions, however, may need further investigation to provide you with an appropriate response.
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.
