The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Salmonella Express System provides qualitative detection and biochemical confirmation of Salmonella in enriched food and food process environmental samples. It eliminates agar methods and gives you biochemical confirmation in as little as 44 hours—2X faster than traditional agar—with no special equipment.
One disk can biochemically confirm all presumptive positive colonies on the plate with one test. And there's no need to pick and transfer colonies to any other agar plates for testing with another technology, or send them out to a reference lab for biochemical confirmation.
3M™ Petrifilm™ Salmonella Express System Plates have a significantly longer expiration date than agar plates, which all too often must be thrown out before they're ever used. What's more, they take up 85% less space, freeing up valuable room in your incubators, lab bench, refrigerators—and your waste stream.
We use the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Salmonella Express System for fishmeal product testing. The multi-step system is seamless for my lab technicians to integrate with their daily routine. The feature we most appreciate is the visibility to Salmonella colony growth on the 3M Petrifilm Salmonella Express Plate. Colony visibility transforms the obscure world of microbiology into a tangible reality and inspires our operators in raising the bar on feed-safety practices.
