The Neogen® Petrifilm® Lactic Acid Bacteria Count (LAB) Plate is a self-contained, sample-ready-culture-medium system which contains nutrients, selective agents, a cold-water-soluble gelling agent, and a tetrazolium indicator that facilitates colony enumeration. The Petrifilm LAB Plate contains oxygen scavenging compounds which create an anaerobic environment for the recovery of homofermentative and heterofermentative lactic acid bacteria in the food and beverage industries. .

Anaerobic made easy

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. 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.

The Petrifilm Plate Advantage

In today’s environment of heightened focus on food safety and increasingly stringent quality requirements, labs are under pressure to provide tests that are fast, reliable and consistently accurate. Petrifilm Plates have demonstrated consistent performance that has been cited globally with more than 200 certificates, recognitions, validations, and peer-review publications. For almost 40 years, food safety professionals around the world have put their trust in Petrifilm Plates.
