Our high-quality agar settle plates (also known as sedimentation plates [AK1] or settling plates) are perfectly tailored for use by pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. Whether designed for use in clean rooms and isolators, or less critical controlled environments, our settle plates meet all relevant international standards and regulations, including EU cGMP, FDA Aseptic Guidance and USP <1116>.
Our gamma-irradiated and triple-bagged ICR (Isolator Clean Room) and ICR plus settle plates are suitable for use in critical cleanrooms, RABS and isolators. They can be used for passive and active air monitoring with the MAS® Air Sampler family, as well as for glove prints. In addition, they are available as non-lockable ICR plates, and lockable ICR plus plates.
To minimize the risk of contamination during transportation of the samples from a sterile to a non classified environment, we offer gamma sterilized zip lock bags, suitable for contact and settle plates.
In addition to all the above features and benefits, our ICR Plus settle plates have CLOSED- or VENT-closure offering the following advantages
The new TSA (Tryptic soy agar) media including the four neutralizers lecithin (L), Tween 80 (T), Histidine (H) and sodium Thiosulfate (Thio) provides additional unique features:
Our range of non-irradiated settle plates are designed for use in non-controlled and less critical controlled cleanrooms. They can be used for passive and active air monitoring as well as glove prints. Ten plates each are single bagged.
Single-bagged settle plates for environmental monitoring in less critical areas
Ideal for monitoring less critical cleanroom areas, such as grade C, D and E, or non-specified environments, our single bagged long(L) incubation (I) settle plates are the ideal choice. Their high-filling volume 30 mL in 90 mm settle plates reduces the percentage of water loss during the air monitoring procedures.
These plates are available in Tryptic Soy agar (TSA), or Sabouraud Dextrose agar (SDA), which is ideally suited for the growth of yeast and molds. They are supplemented with neutralizers such as lecithin (L), tween 80 (T), histidine (H) and sodium thiosulfate (Th) to inactivate a wide range of disinfectants.To suppress the growth of bacteria SDA media available with chloramphenicol also.
