General description

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. It is intended to determine the total aerobic count using a special medium composition and unique redox indicator dyes for not only standard but also rapid enumeration. The MC MEDIA PAD® is coated with growth medium and chromogenic substrate for total aerobic enumeration. Once the liquid sample is inoculated onto the test pad, the sample diffuses through the whole pad by capillary action.

Application

The MC-Media Pad® enables rapid detection of total aerobic microbial contamination and therefore is very useful in checking for microbial contamination in raw and in-process food and beverage samples. While improving the workflow, it also ensures accurate and reliable results.
