Easy Plate EC For E. coli & Coliform
Colonies of E. coli exhibit a blue-violet to navy blue color and colonies of non-E. coli coliform exhibit a clear pink to red-violet color using 2 types of chromogenic substrates.
1. Brightly colored colonies at 24 hours
- Conventional tests using traditional agar or liquid media can be replaced with one sheet of Easy Plate media.
- Identification and counting of colonies is easier compared with other media, such as traditional agar, since the colored colonies make it unnecessary to confirm the presence or absence of air bubbles or the size of colonies.
2.High correlation with the plate count agar
High correlation with the plate count agar in various foods.※１

Coloring of the plate surface caused by enzymes contained in foods
In some unheated foods and dairy products, residual enzymes in the food may cause a red-violet coloring to develop over the entire incubation area. If the visibility of the colonies is affected, improvement can be obtained using dilutions.
