3M™ Petrifilm™

3M™ Petrifilm™ plates are a range of sample-ready media plates that are uniquely designed to offer you time savings, increased productivity, reliability and most of all that you can feel confident about. Combined with the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader will provide consistently accurate counts in just 4 seconds. This compact machine fits efficiently into the lab environment and saves critical time by automating your lab’s labour intensive plate reading.

Detection and Enumeration

Detect and enumerate quality indicators, spoilage organisms, pathogens and targets such as virus, meat ID and GMO with a broad choice of methods from traditional selective and differential agar media to rapid, real-time PCR assays.


PrepSeq Sample Preparation Kits

The PrepSEQ® Nucleic Acid Extraction Kit produces high-quality bacterial DNA samples for PCR-based detection from a wide range of food and environmental samples.

Pathatrix Auto System

The Pathatrix® instrument is a fully automated sample prep system designed to rapidly and accurately handle any sample matrices to help save you time and money. Using paramagnetic particles that are either antibody-coated or positively charged, the Pathatrix® system selectively binds and concentrates target organisms from many of the complex matrices found in food, environmental, and biothreat samples.
