Introducing Charm's Peel Plate Microbial Detection: Revolutionizing Bacterial Testing
The Charm Peel Plate test revolutionizes bacterial testing. It is a ready-made testing dish. Just open the bag and it’s ready to go. Easy to interpret results with colonies that remain intact for additional confirmation, gas interpretation, and ultra specific microbial identification. AOAC-RI and PMO-NCIMS approved, fully compliant with health regulations and testing requirements, and competitively priced, Charm Peel Plate microbial tests are the optimal testing device to discover food quality concerns, reduced shelf life, and food safety issues due to pathogens.
The Peel Plate tests offer many advantages over other microbial test technologies. They use a buffered formulation so pH adjustment is not required for most samples. Interpretation of coliform/E.coli is easy and clear as we use a color indicator, instead of gas production, to differentiate the bacteria. To learn even more advantages, watch the short video.
- Reliable detection
- No preparation
