Rapid and convenient method for the enumeration of Yeast & Mould in food products, waters, pharmaceuticals and environmental samples.
Base price

Food manufacturers and laboratories can now test foods, waters environmental swabs easily and economically using the Compact Dry™ Yeast and Mould (YM) plates.

Compact Dry™ Yeast and Mould (YM) plates utilize chromogenic media allowing differentiation of yeast and mould by colour development. Due to the inclusion of the chromogenic subsrate X-Phos, yeast colonies form as a blue colour on the surface of the membrane. Moulds which grow on the surface of the membrane will show typical colours. Bacterial growth is inhibited due to the inclusion of antibiotics in the medium.

Each Compact Dry™ plate has a lid, allowing 3 dimensional growth of colonies on the plate. Results are available within 3-7 days when incubated at 25°C.
