Our comprehensive quality control system is designed for your peace of mind. Incoming raw materials are screened for growth performance before being implemented on the floor, and final formulations are tested for consistency so you get reliable results from first plate to last in every batch.

Get in touch to learn more about how we ensure performance to help accelerate your breakthroughs.

We have developed a breadth of tests for our customers' unique applications, handpicking 27 bacterial and 8 fungal strains to establish proprietary predictive growth patterns that include a variety of antibiotic combinations. We perform tests daily, inspecting growth patterns for efficiency and consistency.

We screen the first and last plates in every lot for sterility and performance to help ensure batch-to-batch consistency so you get reproducible results.

We have refined our products and testing to make sure you get optimal shelf life when it gets to your lab. We can perform custom stability testing for your unique storage conditions.

We maintain retention samples for the lifespan of the product, so we can continually test its integrity.

Did you know?

Our standard 100 mm round pre-poured plates come in easy-dispense sleeves developed by our engineers to maintain sterility.


The sleeves minimize environmental exposure as you dispense your plates, and are heat shrink-wrapped for added protection.
