Compliant and Accurate Bioburden Testing with EZ Family and ReadyPlate™ 55

Assure compliance for water and beverage testing by combining our EZ Filtration system with ReadyPlate™ 55 media

When performing high-throughput testing of filterable samples, it is important to ensure that the process is as streamlined as possible to reduce the chance of sample contamination. Combining EZ-Fit® Filtration Units with ReadyPlate™ 55 media means that your membrane transfer will be easy and reproducible.

Designed to help protect samples from contamination during the testing process, EZ-Fit® Filtration Units are pre-sterilized, a vented lid covers the sample throughout filtration, and a 360° rim prevents forceps from accidentally touching the membrane filtration area during membrane transfer. EZ-Fit® Filtration Units comply with water testing regulations and conform to international standards including EP, USP and ISO.


When used in combination with ReadyPlate™ 55 ready-to-use 55 mm agar plates, false results are reduced thanks to the high agar fill level that maintains perfect contact between the membrane and the agar. ReadyPlate™ 55 plates are also lockable to prevent cross-contamination, and with a long shelf life they can be stored at room temperature.

Feaures and Benefits

EZ Stream pump



  • EZ-Fit® Filtration Units are sterilized and ready to use, making perilous funnel flaming or time-consuming autoclaving a thing of the past.
  • Lockable plates prevent contamination from microorganisms and spores.


  • Our innovative funnel assembly design prevents any leaks and ensures that the whole sample volume is filtered.
  • Easy membrane handling throughout all steps due to high plate filling volume (transfer, placement, and removal).


  • Unique filtration unit and media plate design allows stable stacking.


  • Reduce autoclave energy costs and water consumption.
  • Reduce incoming QC.
  • No media plate refrigeration required.

Assured Compliance

  • ReadyPlate™ 55 media is compliant to ISO 11133 and released through an ISO 17025 accredited QC lab.


  • Clear, transparent funnel material for visualizing the end of the filtration from any angle.
  • Maximize incubator space. More plates can be stored compared to 90 mm plates.


  • The protective rim of the EZ-Fit® Filtration Unit base allows easy and safe membrane transfer.
  • Small, high-fill ReadyPlate™ 55 agar plates allow for perfect membrane placement with no air bubbles, and reduces false results.
