Hach® Peel Plate test lets you test HPC with no media preparation.

The heterotrophic plate count (HPC), formerly known as the standard plate count, is a procedure for estimating the number of live heterotrophic bacteria in water. This test can provide useful information about water quality and supporting data on the significance of coliform test results. High concentrations of the general bacterial population may hinder the recovery of coliforms .
The HPC is useful in judging the efficiency of various treatment processes for drinking water, swimming pools, as well as for checking the quality of finished water in a distribution system. Also for applications where boilers and cooling towers are present. Hach Peel Plate HPC test drastically simplifies HPC testing:

  • No media preparation required
  • R2a media with proprietary indicator is easy to read and count
  • Convenient stacking
  • Flexible for direct addition or filtration samples
  • Long shelf-life
