Operating of the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced

After incubation, 3M™ Petrifilm™ plates can be easily fed into the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced where each plate is imaged and counted via onboard solid artificial intelligence in less than six seconds. The software has been trained and validated with a wide range of feeding matrices to ensure accurate plate counting.

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software uses a simple and streamlined user interface to collect, store and report 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate results.

The system recognises 10 barcode symbologies allowing users to easily map details such as food type and dilution, rather than taking inventory by hand.

Results can be exported to the user's Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and other reporting tools. In addition, the 3M Petrifilm Plate Manager Software allows users to access results from multiple PCs connected to a company intranet.
