Visually counting colonies on a plate is a time-consuming task which has made automated plate counters a valuable tool in a microbiology laboratory. The 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader Advanced automates the enumeration of nine 3M Petrifilm Plates, plus the 3M Petrifilm Staph Express Disk to aid lab analysts while performing this task.
Join Brad Stawick, President and Technical Director at Stawick Laboratory Management, and Alec Teagarden from 3M Food Safety, for a discussion on ways that food laboratories can improve productivity and efficiency.
With significant productivity and performance advantages over traditional agar plates, it’s no wonder that 3M Petrifilm Plates have become a standard method in microbial indicator testing for companies all over the world.
Explore our standard 3M Petrifilm Plates for consistent, accurate and validated indicator testing or our rapid 3M Petrifilm Plates, with a faster time to result.
The 3M™ Molecular Detection System uses a single post-enrichment protocol for pathogen testing. This means you can run 96 tests of multiple types in one run. Coupled with the automation technology from the Hamilton® foodInspect™ NIMBUS®, food safety labs can automate key steps in their pathogen testing process – freeing up time to take on more value-added tasks.
The benefits of automation are clear: Increased productivity, reduced hands-on time and greater flexibility
