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. MC MEDIA PAD® Yeast & Mold is intended for enumeration of yeasts and molds in foods with an aw of >0.95. The MC MEDIA PAD® is coated with a growth medium and a redox indicator for detection. Once the liquid sample is inoculated onto the test pad, the sample diffuses through the whole pad by capillary action.
MC-Media Pad® Yeasts and Molds is recommended for the detection and enumeration of Yeasts and molds in foods, beverages, and dried Cannabis Flower (THC>0.3%).
