MBL adds new 2 Day Yeast & Mold Analysis to ISO Scope

by Brenda Brown

Yeasts and molds can grow in a wide range of conditions in your raw materials, finished product and production environment, making them difficult to control.

Complicating matters is the five-day incubation period required by traditional agar methods. 3M™ Petrifilm™ Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Plates are a faster, easier method.

Featuring a new indicator technology that makes colonies easier to interpret, these completely sample-ready plates provide results in just 48 hours.

Proven as reliable as the DRBC and DG-18 spread plate methods as well as the acidified PDA and YGC agar pour plate methods, 3M Petrifilm Rapid Yeast and Mold Count Pates also enhance your productivity by eliminating the inoculation of multiple spread plates, the addition of antibiotics or tartaric acid and the agar preparation process altogether.

Faster results and less labor means you’ll have more time to monitor your process, ensuring tighter process control and a higher quality product.
