3M™ Petrifilm™ Yeast and Mold Count Plate can differentiate and enumerate yeast and mold in 3-5 days. 3M™ Petrifilm™ Yeast & Mold Count Plate identifies food borne yeast and mold in food products and food processing environments. Yeast is easily differentiated from molds on the plate.

For fast, accurate results in 3-5 days - follow three easy steps:
1) Inoculate - easy to inoculate, lift the top film and add sample
2) Incubate - designed to maximize incubator space
3) Enumerate - Yeast is typically indicated by small, blue-green colonies with defined edges and no foci. Molds are indicated by large, variably-colored colonies with diffused edges and center foci. A built in grid facilitates counting colonies, providing fast, precise and accurate results
