Easy Plate SA is a microbiological culture device made up of a waterproof sheet, a readymade dry medium on the sheet and a transparent cover over the medium. medium. The Easy Plate SA method is intended to indicate the level of Staphylococcus aureus in food products.
It is compact and easy to use and reduces the total amount of waste produced during testing. The Easy Plate SA method has been granted AOAC Research Institute Performance Tested Methods SM (111703) for eleven food matrices: raw raw ground beef, raw lamb, cooked ham, raw salmon, frozen prawn, fresh chilled pasta, pasteurized milk, natural cheese, cream puff and potato salad.
During preparation of the plates for incubation, no additional tools are required. This due to the hydrophobic ring around the culture area, which helps with the automatic spreading of the sample on the culture area.
