A solution that makes microbiological testing of food easier!

Microbial Film Media (Easy Plate)

Save time, labor, and money with Kikkoman Easy Plate. Easy Plate is a convenient, prepared media plates for faster and easier microbiological testing. Using a time-tested and AOAC validated culture media methodology, Easy Plate comes in an easy-to-use, stackable film plate format that saves on space, reduces waste, eliminates preparation time and labor, and streamlines your test procedures. Each Easy Plate is specialized for a specific target organism (or group) and includes options for Aerobic Bacteria (AC), Coliforms (CC), E. coli/Coliforms (EC) , Staphylococcus aureus (SA) and Yeast and Mold(YM-R).

1. Time & Space saving

  • No need for media preparation and sterilization.
  • Faster sample inoculation without special equipment.
  • Easy Plate’s stackable design greatly reduces the operational space required.

2. Simple operation, reliable results

  • Extensive training is not required.
  • Test results correlate well with established conventional laboratory procedures. 
  • Easy Plate AC, CC, EC, SA is AOAC RI PTM Certified.

3.Reduces incubation space and waste

  • Requires only 1/20th of that needed by a petri dish, increasing your incubation volume. Storage space requirements, incubation space and waste are all reduced.
  • Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are also reduced compared to traditional agar plates.
