3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced is a compact instrument that automates the enumeration of 11 different 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates to enhance laboratory productivity and ensure accurate, consistent readings. Results are stored in the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software for data analysis.

The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced enumerates 10 different 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates: Rapid Aerobic Count, Rapid Coliform Count, Rapid E. coli/Coliform Count, Rapid Yeast and Mold Count, Aerobic Count, Coliform Count, Enterobacteriaceae Count, E. coli/Coliform Count, Select E. coli Count, Staph Express Count and Staph Express Disk.

  • Reads 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates in six seconds or less per plate using artificial intelligence to produce accurate results
  • Enumerates 11 different 3M Petrifilm Plates to bring more productivity into your lab
  • Includes 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software to perform insightful analyses that lead to more informed decision-making
  • Supports reading of several bar code symbologies for integration into laboratory processes

Following incubation, 3M Petrifilm Plates can be easily fed into the 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader Advanced where each plate is imaged and enumerated via onboard fixed artificial intelligence in less than six seconds. Each 3M Petrifilm Plate artificial intelligence network was trained and validated with a wide assortment of food matrices to ensure accurate plate enumeration.


The 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Manager Software utilizes a simple and streamlined user interface to collect, store, and report 3M Petrifilm Plate results. The system recognizes 10 barcode symbologies which enables users to easily map details such as technician, food type, and dilution, rather than transcribing by hand. Results can be exported to a user’s Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) and other reporting tools. Additionally, the 3M Petrifilm Plate Manager Software allows users to access results from multiple PCs that are connected to a company intranet.
