Description:

EasyDisc™ provides faster, easier quantification of heterotrophic bacteria in water.

Principle: EasyDisc offers an easy solution for HPC testing with no agar preparation needed, requiring less than one minute of hands-on time to process a sample. Positive results appear as blue colonies, removing any ambiguity of results, and colony counting is made easier by the integrated gridlines in the EasyDisc plate. With an 18-month shelf life, EasyDisc reduces the need for repetitive quality control checks.

Approvals: France (2022) EasyDisc YEA has been granted NF Validation Certification by AFNOR under the reference No 33/09 – 03/22 for the enumeration of cultural micro-organisms in water for human consumption (drinking water).
