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 as a food microbiological test kit – 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 YM-R is a rapid type prepared media plates for yeast and mold. Colonies are clearly colored in 48 ± 2 hours. A microbial test kit that has a shorter incubation time than agar media. The redox indicator creates purple colonies, making it easy to identify and count colonies even in the presence of food residues. The mold colonies spread widely and form purple colonies with diffuse edges. Yeast colonies form small circles and have defined edges.
１．Easily distinguishable brightly colored colonies at 48 hours
Colonies develop a purple color, making it easy to identify and count colonies even in the presence of food residues. If coloration is unclear, incubate for up to 72 hours.
|Easy Plate YM-R||PDA Medium|
|48 hours incubation||120 hours incubation|
２． High correlation with the plate count agar
High correlation with the plate count agar in various foods.
Coloring of the plate surface caused by enzymes contained in foods
Easy Plate YM-R has purple colonies. Yeast would appear colonies with small circle and defined edges.
The mold colonies spread widely and form purple colonies with diffuse edges.
