This analysis is for the customer looking to assess cell count numbers only or total plate counts (TPCs). Results reported are the total number of organisms in a 100mL sample. Samples are sterile membrane filtered and then grown on UBA (or another media upon request) under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. If the sample is unable to move through the filter then spread plate methods are utilized. Sample size requirements: Two 12 oz. duplicate containers per samples needing analyzed.
