The MC MEDIA PAD® serves as a convenient method for the rapid routine testing of microbial contamination of raw and in-process food and beverage materials, and finished products. The MC MEDIA PAD® is a pre-sterilized, ready-to-use dry culture device, simplifying testing and minimizing the quantity of waste. MC MEDIA PAD® is composed of a unique adhesive sheet, a test pad coated with medium and water absorption polymer, and a transparent cover film to automatically re-constitute the media. The MC MEDIA PAD® is coated with selective medium and chromogenic substrate for specific detection. Once the liquid sample is inoculated onto the test pad, the sample diffuses through the whole pad by capillary action.
To determine the microbial count in food and beverage products. MC MEDIA PAD® Coliform is intended to determine the coliform number using a special medium composition and specific chromogenic substrate for β-galactosidase.
Presence of coliform bacteria in the sample grow as blue-green/blue coloured colonies on test pad.
