3M™ Petrifilm™ Aerobic Count Plates (U.S. AOAC®) are sample-ready to use and help determine aerobic bacteria populations in testing processes. The indicator dye and built in grid allows for fast accurate identificaiton of colonies, within 48 hours.

A survey of 274 plants who converted to 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates from traditional agar methods found an average labor savings of 45% and an average increased technician efficiency of 80%.

Our full line of easy-to-use 3M Petrifilm Plates can provide you with many benefits over traditional methods.

In addition, 3M Petrifilm Aerobic Count Plates can be used to aerobically or anaerobically enumerate lactic acid bacteria in food and environmental samples.
