Nutrient Pad Sets are sterile, dehydrated culture media for microbiological analysis by the membrane filter method. This method allows large sample volumes with low microbial count to be tested and inhibitors, such as essential oils or disinfectants, can be rinsed out after filtration, before incubation. All Nutrient Pad types are compared lot by lot against the corresponding agar media (CFU count at least 90% and identical growth pattern (colony shape, size, color or inhibition)). Practical and easy to handle, Nutrient Pads reduce labor and simplify many microbiological testing procedures. Please select your search criteria and this Application Guide will navigate you to those types of Nutrient Pad Sets which will meet your needs.
