Yeast and molds can grow in a wide range of conditions in raw materials, finished products and production environments, making them difficult to control. The 3M™ Petrifilm® Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate method is faster and provides results in as little as 48 hours of incubation time, vs. the traditional agar method that requires a five day incubation period. This plate features a new indicator technology that makes colonies easier to interpret.

Proven as reliable as the DRBC and DG 18 spread plate methods as well as the acidified PDA and YGC agar pour plate methods, 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plates also enhance productivity by eliminating the inoculation of multiple spread plates, the addition of antibiotics or tartaric acid, and the agar preparation process altogether. Faster results provide more time to monitor processes and ensure tighter process controls to support product quality.
