Bottled sterility plating for yeast and bacteria is generally used on filtered product to validate that the filtration worked properly and that sterility was maintained throughout the process. This plating is used to determine the obvious presence of yeast and/or bacteria in a 300mL sample. Most micro-organisms are apparent in two to three days; final results reported at seven days. If there is microbial growth, further precise testing can be performed to characterize and count the micro-organisms as a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) Panel. Recommended for product that has already been sterile filtered.
