Petrifilm™ products by 3M™ are an all-in-one plating system, designed for use in the food safety industry, and intended for testing foodstuffs. Compared to conventional plating methods Petrilim™ products are designed to be more efficient at both detection and enumeration, whilst maintaining the same level of accuracy as traditional methods. 

Petrifilm™ plates are used to culture a number of common micro-organisms including, E. coli / coliform, Enterobacteriaceae, Staphylococcus express, yeast and mould, among others giving accurate, efficient, consistent results, meaning you can trust 3M™ Petrifilm™ plates.

Combined with a 3M™ Petrifilm™ plate reader, for consistent results, Petrifilm™ plates help eliminate the time-consuming, cumbersome step of having to plate up and analyse each dish. Making them a much more time-efficient and cost-effective method.
