Bacteriological Monitors


Each monitor is a single-use, pre-sterilized filtering and culturing unit consisting of a measured filter funnel, base, pad, welded fixed membrane, removable lid and plug.


Ready and simple to use, easy release of membrane.
Rapid testing: with no need to sterilize funnels or filter base between samples, testing time can be reduced by up to 70%.
All-in-one system: filtration unit easily converts to a Petri dish, which can be labeled and incubated for culturing.
Reduced contamination and reproducible results: single use materials virtually eliminate cross-contamination between funnel and membrane.
Available with either black or white membrane for optimal colour contrast. Use of a black membrane enhances the identification of opaque, translucent or white coloured colonies.


Bacteriological Monitors have been specifically designed for the use in the Membrane Filtration (MF) Technique to recover microorganisms from aqueous samples. After filtration is complete, 2mL of microbiological media is added and the unit is converted into a Petri dish for culturing the contaminants collected. The monitors are ideal for monitoring contaminants in liquid samples from raw materials to finished products in:

Pharmaceuticals and cosmetics
Potable water
Waste water

Soft drinks
Beer and wine
Dairy products


Monitors are available in two diameters, 47mm and 56mm, and in 0.2m, 0.45m or 0.8m pore size with either black or white membrane. Supplied in packs of 50. A complete line of ampouled media can be supplied for the use with microbiological monitors. Ampoules have a volume of 2mL and incorporate a unique twist cap to prevent contamination during use. Many formulas are available for applications of various types including custom formulation by request. Please contact us for current prices and more detailed information.
