General description

SimPlate® Binary Detection Technology combines proprietary media and a patented plating device to provide fast and accurate quantitative results for key groups of indicator organisms. Defined substrates incorporated into the media are utilized to detect multiple enzymes and redox reactions associated with the target organisms resulting in chromogenic or fluorescent changes to the media, providing easy-to-read results. Because SimPlate® relies on these key reactions rather than the formation of a colony, results are available days faster than conventional culture methods.


SimPlate® Device is a quantitative counting method that provides rapid, easy-to-interpret results in food and environmental matrices that are challenging for other rapid methods. SimPlate® tests have been validated by international standards (AOAC/MicroVal)
