MC-Media Pad® convenient culture media is used for rapid routine testing of microbial contamination in food and beverage samples throughout production, from raw materials, to finished products. They are based on chromogenic substances included in a media layer to give faster results while reducing the need for time-consuming agar media preparation time. Simply pipette 1 mL of sample to the center of the pad—it diffuses automatically, eliminating the need for spreaders. Then incubate and count your results. The tests are compliant to international standards and provide accurate results, even with difficult to test matrices such as cheese products, dehydrated products like dried soup, or high sugar and acidic products like cola. Recent studies have shown that MC-Media Pad® is also suitable for hygiene monitoring applications including passive air monitoring, personnel and surface monitoring. In addition to streamlining the microbiology testing workflow, they save space in the incubator and fridge and waste bins. Up to 20 pads can be stacked. The long shelf-life of up to 36 months can improve inventory management.
