You can only put so much test material on a PetriFilm.


The Biolumix can accommodate a direct inoculation of test material and can test for the presence of specified organisms. Although a direct count is not possible, you may be able to dilute the product to the spec level for an estimation of viable cells. See 2012. Miller, M.J. Case Study of a New Growth-Based Rapid Microbiological Method (RMM) that Detects the Presence of Specific Organisms and Provides an Estimation of Viable Cell Count. American Pharmaceutical Review. 15(2): 18-25.

Have you ever heard of Petrifilm? It can test for all of that and you can get quantitative results.
