General description

Plate Count Agar Kit contains
ReadyPlate PC Agar plates of 55mm diameter is a selective culture medium. The pH of the medium is in the optimum range of 6.8-7.2 for the growth of bacteria. The media is relatively rich in its nutrients and does not contain any inhibitors or indicators. The enzymatic digest of casein serves as a nitrogen source with high levels of free amino acids followed by yeast extract, which is a rich source of vitamins. The carbon source for the growth of bacteria is served by glucose thereby providing efficient growth of bacteria.
EZ-Pak Filters are ready-to-use, sterile filters made of Mixed cellulose esters (MCE) with 0.45 μm pore size, white, gridded and 50mm diameter. These filters possess high recoveries.

Application

Plate Count Agar Kit contains 55mm plates with EZPAK 0.45 μm white gridded membrane for the simultaneous enumeration of total viable count using the Membrane Filtration method in water samples
