Easy Plate CC


Easy Plate
is a convenient, prepared media plate with no need for media preparation or sterilization. Easy Plate is an easy to use alternative to in-house media preparation using traditional plated media that saves time, labor and reduces waste. Using an Easy Plate – which is about 1/20 volume of the traditional petri dish – saves space and allows you to run more tests with your current incubator space. Easy Plates come ready-to-use and immediately after opening the package you can place a sample suspension onto the media and start incubation.

  Easy Plate CC

Easy Plate CC is an AOAC PTM certified custom media formulation for detection, identification and enumeration of coliforms. The media includes a chromogenic substrate that causes coliforms to exhibit a distinguishable blue color allowing you to easily identify and quantify coliforms in 24±1hrs. This distinct coloring of the colonies also helps to overcome common interferences in food testing for coliforms and makes counting easier. Easy Plate CC is AOAC PTM certified and sold in packages of 100 tests in 4 separate bags containing 25 tests each. The shelf life of 18 months when stored unopened at 2-8℃.




Features

1.Easily distinguishable brightly colored colonies at 24 hours

Identification and counting of colonies is easier compared to other media, such as traditional plate count 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.

3. AOAC PTM certified

AOAC PTM Certification Acquired.(LicenseNo.021401)

Coloring

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 blue coloring to develop over the entire incubation area. If the visibility of the colonies is affected, improvement can be obtained using dilutions.
