Detail Hach Peel Plate® Heterotrophic Count Media
Peel Plate® Heterotrophic Plate Count Media
Product #: PP-HPC-50
Hach® Peel Plate test lets you test HPC with no media preparation.
The heterotrophic plate count (HPC), formerly known as the standard plate count, is a procedure for estimating the number of live heterotrophic bacteria in water. This test can provide useful information about water quality and supporting data on the significance of coliform test results. High concentrations of the general bacterial population may hinder the recovery of coliforms .
The HPC is useful in judging the efficiency of various treatment processes for drinking water, swimming pools, as well as for checking the quality of finished water in a distribution system. Also for applications where boilers and cooling towers are present. Hach Peel Plate HPC test drastically simplifies HPC testing:
- No media preparation required
- R2a media with proprietary indicator is easy to read and count
- Convenient stacking
- Flexible for direct addition or filtration samples
- Long shelf-life
No media preparation required
Simply peel and pipet onto the prepared media and culture at 35 °C or ambient temperature. Eliminates the hassle of plating and spreading agar.
R2a media with proprietary indicator is easy to read and count
The cultured peel plate reveals red colored colonies that are easy to see and count, no UV lighting is necessary.
Reduce the amount of space needed in the incubator to perform HPC testing.
Flexible for direct addition or filtration samples
Allows for direct addition of a 1 mL sample or filter samples for lower concentrations of organisms.
12 month shelf-life means you are always prepared to perform HPC testing.
