    MC-Media Pad (Yeast & Mold)/ PK100

    SKU: MER1323600001

    Catalogue: 1323600001

    Convenient culture media for enumeration of total yeast and mold count in food and beverages

    General

    The MC-Media Pad® is a pre-sterilized, ready-to-use dry culture device, simplifying testing and minimizing the quantity of waste.

    Mode of Action

    The MC-Media Pad® is composed of a unique adhesive sheet, a test pad coated with medium and water absorption polymer, and a transparent cover film.

    The MC-Media Pad® is coated with selective medium and chromogenic substrate for specific detection. Once the liquid sample is inoculated onto the test pad, the sample diffuses through the whole pad by capillary action. The medium re-constitutes automatically.
