Neogen Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced

The Neogen Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced is a compact instrument that automates the counting of 10 different Neogen Petrifilm™ Plates and the Neogen Petrifilm™ Staph Express Disk to increase laboratory productivity and ensure accurate, consistent readings. Thanks to the Neogen Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software, results are stored for data analysis.

The Neogen Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced features 10 different Neogen Petrifilm™ Plates: Rapid Aerobic Count, Rapid Coliform Count, Rapid E. coli/Coliform Count, Rapid Yeast and Mold Count,Aerobic Count,Coliform Count, Enterobacteriaceae Count, E. coli/Coliform Count, Select E. coli Count, Staph Express Count and Staph Express Disk.


  • Supports the counting of 10  Petrifilm™ Plates and the Petrifilm™ Staph Express Disk using built-in solid artificial intelligence to produce accurate results
  • Counts the Petrifilm™ Plates and the  Petrifilm™ Staph Express Disk in six seconds or less
  • Includes Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software that allows users to create one-off/single reports, recurring scheduled reports and real-time charts. Reports have the option to compare results over time, include graphs (bar, line, pie) and company logo(s).
  • Ability to read 10 barcode symbologies for integration into laboratory processes
  • Artificial intelligence: combination of 'machine learning' and 'deep learning'
  • Remote access of software and reports



Operating of the Neogen Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced

After incubation, Petrifilm™ plates can be easily fed into the 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 Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software uses a simple and streamlined user interface to collect, store and report 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 Petrifilm Plate Manager Software allows users to access results from multiple PCs connected to a company intranet.
