CompactDry™ EC, Escherichia coli and Coliforms, 100 trays per box, by Hardy Diagnostics

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.

Compact Dry™ EC contains two kinds of chromogenic enzyme substrates: Magenta-Gal and X-Gluc. E. coli forms blue colonies, Coliforms turn red. The total coliform group count is the sum of both the red and blue colonies. Compact Dry™ EC is AOAC, MicroVal and NordVal approved.

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.

Features and Benefits:
