A microbiological media "plate" that consists of 2 clear plastic film sheets with sterile medium in between. This super-thin layer of medium supports the growth of microorganisms just like the surface of an agar plate. A class set stacks in the same space as one petri dish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick, tangible results I used this Petrifilm to collect some basic water quality data from the Black River in Springfield, VT after Tropical Storm Irene caused major flooding and damage to infrastructure, including two waste-water treatment facilities. Both as a homeschool project and as a citizen science tool, these were easy to use and provided visceral imagery to use as a tool to engage in conversations about flooding, river corridor integrity, bank stability, and more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Petrifilm. Whoo Hoo This petrifilm is easy to use and great for bacteria labs in class. Although (once incubated) you can only get a bacteria count without a specificity of "good" or "bad" bacteria, the bacteria are easy to count and colonies are easy to see for the most part. The species of bacteria are not distinguishable by the eye.
