Liofilchem® Easy Dry™ culture media are absorbent pads impregnated with a sterile, dehydrated culture medium. Each pad is preplated in a Petri dish and is immediately ready to use after pouring sterile distilled or deionized water on it. Easy Dry™ pads are optimal for the examination of large sample volumes by the membrane filter method.
1. Cut open a bag and remove the number of Easy Dry™ plates needed.
2. Moisten the pad contained in the Petri dish with 2.2 ml of sterile distilled or deionized water.
3. Wait 5 minutes before using.
Filter the sample trough a filter membrane (0.45 µm pore diameter).
Transfer the membrane into a plate containing a just rehydrated pad.
Incubate aerobically at 36 ± 2°C for 18-24 hours.
After incubation observe the color of the colonies and interpret the results as indicated in the ID table.
Store at 10-25°C away from light.
