Company's Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plate is an indicator test that enables the detection of yeasts and molds in as little as 48 hours, faster than conventional agar methods. The new plate also offers food processors a simplified solution for inoculation along with an easy, consistent way to interpret and enumerate colonies. Conventional testing methods require a 5-7 day incubation period. This new technology greatly reduces this delay, improving time-to-result, productivity gains, finished goods inventory and product shelf life. The sample-ready system uses an easy three-step process: Inoculation, Incubation and Enumeration. With the reduced incubation time of as little as 48 hours along with the flexibility of incubation at 25° C or 28° C, food processors can benefit from an innovative solution that enables clearer, easier and faster colony enumeration.
