Industry Leader 3M™ Showcases Innovative Food Safety Testing Expertise and Products at Food Safety Summit

3M™ Food Safety will join the Food Safety Summit in Rosemount, IL, from May 9-12, providing attendees with opportunities to complete free online environmental monitoring assessments to learn ways to help strengthen their food quality and safety protocols. In addition, 3M Food Safety will showcase two of its latest products that are advancing food safety testing within the food and beverage industry: the 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate Reader Advanced and the 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler.

The 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader Advanced is an automation technology that gives food safety professionals options to rapidly and accurately image, count and document microbiological colonies on 3M Petrifilm Plates indicator tests. By rapidly automating the colony-counting step of 3M Petrifilm Plates, the 3M Petrifilm Plate Reader Advanced saves food safety labs time and increases productivity. The device recently received a Gold award at the 2022 Edison Award for its innovative technology in the Commercial Technology category.

The 3M Environmental Scrub Sampler with 10 mL Wide Spectrum Neutralizer is an innovative solution for environmental microbial sampling applications addressing top concerns for food safety testing: neutralizing solution effectiveness, test method compatibility with neutralizing solution, biofilm disruption and bacterial pickup, user-friendly stick with easy detachment, and metal detectability. This technology provides the food manufacturing industry a broad solution for proactive, integrated environmental monitoring and food microbiological testing. 

Through lab efficiency workflow procedures and technologies, 3M is a leader in optimizing and modernizing every step of the food safety testing process. In addition, as food safety regulations continue to evolve and customer expectations for safety have intensified, proactive and preventive strategic approaches for environmental monitoring have increased in prominence. 3M’s innovative testing technologies and existing core technologies allow 3M to offer a robust and fully compatible environmental monitoring program.

Representing 3M Food Safety and available for on-site interviews at Food Safety Summit will be Margaret Vieth, Global Application Engineer Specialist. 3M Food Safety will be at Booth #224.
