3M Petrifilm Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plate Becomes First-Ever Lactic Acid Bacteria Test to Gain Independent Validation


3M Food Safety announced this month that its 3M™ Petrifilm™ Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plate has been awarded AOAC®Performance-Tested MethodSM, Certificate #041701 for a variety of foods. With this AOAC Performance-Tested Method designation, the 3M Petrifilm Lactic Acid Bacteria Count Plate becomes the first commercial method of its kind to receive a validation from a third-party scientific organization.

“Lactic acid bacteria can cause undesirable changes to many processed foods,” says Jason Semerad, 3M Food Safety global marketing manager. “This not only contributes to food waste and costly recalls, but can also damage brand reputation. We’re pleased to offer a validated all-in-one solution that can help reduce waste and prevent costly mistakes.”

The ready-to-use plate, introduced in August 2016, simplifies the testing process for lactic acid bacteria spoilage organisms by serving as a unique all-in-one solution. Companies can use the technology to obtain accurate results in less time, extend shelf-life, reduce waste, minimize recalls and improve the look, taste, texture and smell of their products.
