Yeast and Mould – SimPlate®

  • Rapid Enumeration of Yeast and Moulds - SimPlate Yeast and Mould utilises proprietary Binary Detection Technology™ to provide quantitative results for both yeast and mould from food and environmental samples in just 56-72 hours.
  • Easy-to-Read Results - Proprietary chromogenic media and patented plating device with isolation wells combine to produce easily counted results and eliminate problems typically associated with mould overgrowth.
  • Reduced Testing Costs - While other methods require duplicate plating of samples, SimPlate has been validated to provide equivalent results with just a single plate. Combined with the reduction of necessary sample dilutions, made possible by the broad counting range of the plate (1-738), SimPlate reduces the number of tests required for each sample, helping to reduce overall testing costs.
