Peel Plate EB Test
The Enterobacteriaceae bacteria are a family of gram negative bacteria encompassing coliform, E. coli, Shigella, Salmonella, and Yersinia. These bacteria indicate unsanitary conditions in raw products and are killed by heat steps in food processing. EB testing is used as a post-production verification of process and pathogen risk used, for example, to test dry milk powder and infant formula.
EB is regulated globally, similar to coliform/E.coliregulation in the US.
Incubation 24 to 48 hours at 37°C produce multiple colored round growth spots that are all recorded as EB.
High Volume plates are available.
