3M™ Petrifilm™ Aqua Yeast and Mold Count (AQYM) Plates

3M™ Petrifilm™ Aqua Yeast and Mold Count (AQYM) Plates are a sample-ready culture medium system which contain nutrients supplemented with antibiotics, a cold-water-soluble gelling agent, and an indicator that facilitates yeast and mold enumeration. These plates are used for the enumeration of yeast and mold in bottled water industries.

  • Results in 3-5 days.
  • Detects yeast and mold in bottled water.
  • Plates are sample-ready, eliminating the time-consuming, cumbersome step of preparing media/agar dishes.

3M Petrifilm Aqua Plates are sample-ready media that replace conventional agar, petri dishes, media pads and disposable filter funnels used in the microbial testing of water. Each plate contains a water-soluble gelling agent, nutrients and indicators in a dry, shelf-stable format. 3M Petrifilm Aqua Plates can be used with the membrane filtration technique or the 1 mL direct-plating technique for Heterotrophic Count. 3M recommends using Mixed Cellulose Ester (MCE) filters, the most widely used filter material for water testing.

  • Eliminates the need for agar preparation
  • 18-month shelf life
  • Reduces incubator space and waste
  • Easy to use

3M Petrifilm Aqua Plates take up 85% less space than agar dishes and 95% less space than disposable filter funnels. That frees up valuable space in your incubator, on your lab bench, in your refrigerator and in your waste container.
