Ready-to-use Compact Dry™ TCR plates combine the properties of chromogenic dry media and gel contact plates. The plates contain a nutrient medium enabling total viable count (TVC) easily visualized by the color of the resulting colonies. The plates provide a quantitative estimation of microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts and molds) in a sample. This count is often represented as the number of colony forming units (cfu) per unit of sample.
