    The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Aerobic Count Plate is a time-saving, sample-ready plate designed to determine total aerobic bacteria populations.

    A built-in grid facilitates counting colonies, helping to provide fast, precise and consistent results. Each 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate contains a water-soluble gelling agent, nutrients and indicator — all the components needed for microbial growth with no agar preparation required. The 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate provides total aerobic count in as little as 48 hours. A red indicator dye in the plate colors all colonies red for better contrast and easier colony counting. The red colonies are also easily distinguished from opaque food particles that can cause confusion when using other plating methods. In addition, 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plates can be used to aerobically or anaerobically enumerate lactic acid bacteria in food and environmental samples. Three Easy Steps Offer Fast, Easy-to-Interpret Results:* 1) Inoculate - 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plates are easy to inoculate. Lift the top film and add sample. 2) Incubate - The space saving design minimizes incubator space requirements. 3) Interpret - Count the red colonies; a built-in grid simplifies counting, giving you fast, precise, and consistent results. *Refer to instructions for use for additional information, and more details on validations. This 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plate can also be read using the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader. This plate reader provides consistent, fast, automated reading and recording of results of 3M Petrifilm Plates (Aerobic Count, Coliform Count and E. coli/Coliform Count) in 4 seconds. The 3M 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. 3M Petrifilm Plates have demonstrated consistent performance that has been cited globally with more than 200 certificates, recognitions, validations, and peer-review publications. For more than 30 years, food safety professionals around the wor
