The Neogen® 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, Petrifilm Rapid Aerobic Count Plates help agar users avoid costly retesting and delayed results due to interpretation issues 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.
