3M™ Petrifilm™ Enterobacteriaceae Count Plate enumerate all Enterobacteriaceae organisms, it provides a more inclusive picture of potential contamination. The end result is better information and better process control for a higher-quality finished product. Enterobacteriaceae are of great importance since these organisms are involved in food spoilage, indicators of fecal contamination in food products, some of which are food borne pathogens.
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%. The end result is higher quality product, better process control and an overall reduction in operational costs..
