Contact plates (tryptic soy agar [TSA] containing 1% Tween or MacConky agar) were prepared using RODAC petri dishes (3 cm diameter).
(12.) Angelotti R, Wilson JL, Litsky W, Walter WG Comparative evaluation of the cotton swab and rodac methods for the recovery of Bacillus subtilis endospore contamination from stainless steel surfaces.
Becton Dickinson Rodac [TM] plates were used because their raised surface is ideal for such activity.
Cultures were collected with 50 mm Rodac contact plates filled with mannitol salt agar with a convex surface that allowed for easy culture sampling by pressing the plates onto a surface.
Rodac plates (65-mm tryptic soy agar [TSA] plates; Becton-Dickinson, Franklin Lakes, NJ) were pressed onto the surface being sampled.
We used replicate organism detection and counting (Rodac) plates (Becton Dickinson Microbiology Systems, Cockeysville, Md.) to monitor surface cleanliness regarding the presence and number of microorganisms.[8] These plates contain a raised convex nutrient agar bed, which can be applied directly to virtually any surface.
The air sampler collects airborne microbes directly onto 55-mm rapid organism detection and counting (RODAC) plates through impaction (Theron, 2003).
Comparative evaluation of the cotton swab and Rodac methods for the recovery of Bacillus subtilis spore contamination from stainless steel surfaces.
A common size (for ease of arithmetic calculation) is a 10-inch-by-10-inch, or 100-square-inch (100 [in.sup.2]), area in which five Rodac or Hycon plates are randomly arranged; this size is usually sufficient for a relatively accurate picture of the bioburden.

The basic SAS sampler uses inexpensive contact plates (RODAC) and is traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology The enhancements and accessories made for the basic model allow for sampling in many different environments--and under many different environmental conditions.
Rodac plates with malt agar were used to collect the air samples; swabs were used to collect the surface samples.
