Food and Water Microbiology Made Easy
Designed and developed for sanitation verification, product shelf life monitoring, and to be early warning of pathogen risks, Peel Plate Microbial tests are simplified alternatives to conventional microbiological testing.
Designed and developed for sanitation verification, product shelf life monitoring, and an early warning of pathogen risks, Peel Plate Microbial tests are simplified alternatives to conventional microbiological testing. Validated food matrices include dairy products, meat, produce rinses, water, and food environmental monitoring. With Peel Plate, you receive the same trusted results without the media prep time and labor.
Peel Plates use an easy to interpret color development to determine bacterial growth, rather than a more subjective gas production of some other methods.
Plates are designed for uniform heat and air flow and with an air space above growth to allow opening and picking of growth for additional microbiological procedures and identification.
Peel Plate AC Test
Peel Plate AC nutrient rich non-selective media encourages the growth of all aerobic, oxygen consuming bacteria. Aerobic counts are used as tools in identifying sanitation issues, potential shelf life issues, and are considered elevated listeria risk indicator in food production environmental monitoring. Peel Plate AC are AOAC-RI validated and PMO approved for a variety of dairy, food and environmental samples. Aerobes appear as red spots with a defined center within 48 hours at 32 or 35ºC; size may vary.
