Whitley Automated Spiral Plater (WASP)

Spiral Plating Techniques Recognised in New ISO 4833-2

The new ISO 4833-2:2013 standard specifies surface plating techniques for enumeration of microorganisms and includes a section covering spiral platers and automated colony counters. It does not recommend or approve the use of any particular product or brand name; however, it is general recognition of the use of spiral plating techniques in food microbiology and provides standardized procedures for their use.

If you are not already aware of the Whitley Automated Spiral Plater (WASP) – one of the industry leading spiral platers – and all the benefits to your laboratory, please have a look at our website.
