The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plate is a time-saving, sample-ready plate designed to determine total lactic acid bacteria populations in food and environmental samples.
Introducing the first self contained anaerobic plates for lactic acid bacteria testing: 3M™ Petrifilm™ Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plates. Every day, food processors, retailers and consumers are forced to throw out food spoiled with lactic acid bacteria. These normally useful bacteria can cause undesirable changes to ready to eat meats and seafood, dressings and sauces, vegetables and many other processed foods. This not only contributes to food waste and costly recalls, but can also damage your brand reputation. 3M science brings you a better way to test for lactic acid bacteria in your food products, raw materials and production environment without the hassle of traditional agar methods – 3M™ Petrifilm™ Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plates. These ready to use plates simplify the testing process and give accurate results in less time, helping you reduce waste, minimize recalls and protect your reputation in the marketplace. Anaerobic made easy. Now you can get true anaerobic results using standard aerobic incubation conditions. The self contained anaerobic environment in this plate enhances the recovery of lactic acid bacteria, providing fast, accurate results for effective control of product quality and shelf life. Three Steps Offer Fast and Easy to Interpret Results: 1) Inoculate. 2) Incubate . 3) Interpretate: Review the interpretation guide 3M Petrifilm Plates have demonstrated consistent performance that has been cited globally with more than 200 certificates, recognitions, validations, and peer review publications (Link to validations section)
