IDEXX Introduces EasyDisc™ for Next-Generation HPC Testing

Posted: Tuesday 6th April 2021

IDEXX, the global leader in rapid microbiological testing for water, has launched EasyDisc™, a new testing platform for the detection of heterotrophic plate counts (HPC) in water.

EasyDisc offers an easy solution for HPC testing, with no agar preparation needed, and requiring less than one minute of hands-on time to process a sample. Blue colonies reduce ambiguity of results, and colony counting is made easier by the integrated gridlines in the EasyDisc plate. With a 12-month shelf life, EasyDisc reduces the need for repetitive quality control checks and ensures that tests are ready when needed.

EasyDisc is available in three different formulations to cover all HPC testing needs: PCA and YEA, which correlate with the pour plate method using plate count agar and yeast extract agar respectively for the testing of drinking and source water; and R2A that correlates with the pour plate method using Reasoner’s 2 agar for the testing of medical and/or pharmaceutical waters.
