Testing Method

Binary Detection Technology

Features and Benefits

•  SimPlate Enterobacteriaceae utilizes proprietary Binary Detection Technology to provide quantitative results for members of the Enterobacteriaceae family from food and environmental samples in just 24 hours.
•  Proprietary chromogenic media and patented plating device with isolation wells combine to produce easily counted results. Positive wells are clearly identified based on a visual color change.
•  While other plating methods require duplicate plating of samples, SimPlate provides equivalent results with just a single plate. Combined with the reduction of necessary sample dilutions, made possible by the broad counting range of the plate (1-738), SimPlate reduces the volume of media and number of tests required for each sample, helping to reduce overall testing costs.

General description

SimPlate for Total Enterobacteriaceae Color Indicator (Entero-CI) method is used for the detection and quantification of the total Enterobacteriaceae populations. It is based on Binary Detection Technology (BDT) which equates the presence of total Enterobacteriaceae to the presence of a color change in the medium. The medium/sample mixture is dispensed into a SimPlate device and incubated for 24-28 h. The total Enterobacteriaceae count is determined by counting the wells with changed color and referring to the SimPlate Conversion Table. Colored wells indicate the presence of total Enterobacteriaceae.The SimPlate device is packaged separately.
