Simple and Effective System for Colony Counting!

Compact Dry™ is a ready-to-use system reducing the time needed to perform microbial testing on food, beverage, meat, cosmetics, and raw materials. Place 1ml of sample onto the plate and incubate. Colonies grow and develop specific colors from chromogenic substrates. This provides for easy organism differentiation and counting.

Four Easy Steps!

  1. Remove protective cap from Compact Dry™ plate.
  2. Drop 1ml of specimen (dilute if necessary) in the middle of dry sheet.
  3. Specimen diffuses automatically into the plate, transforming the dry medium to gel.
  4. Re-cap, and incubate for prescribed time. Count the number of colonies on a light box.
