An invisible enemy is far deadlier than one you can see. Bacteria are all around us and in vast numbers. Some of these are harmless and others can cause problems to people and machinery, which can be expensive or life threatening.

The Dipslide can help unmask that invisible enemy. The Dipslide can replace the lengthy traditional methods of testing and is safe, reliable, economical and fast at giving an indication of the presence of bacteria.

Application:
Dip slides are ideal for monitoring microbial growth wherever the potential may exceed 1000 organisms per ml of sample fluid. We have listed below some examples of usage.

Industrial waters:
Dipslides can be used for the detection of slime forming bacteria in cooling & industrial waters, storage tanks and for evaluating biocide performance in treated systems.

Industrial Fluids:
Dipslides can be used for the detection of bacteria & moulds in metalworking fluids, paper processing waters and fuel tanks / systems.

Environmental Hygiene:
Dipslides can be used to monitor the surface contamination within domestic or institutional sites.

Leather Industry:
Dipslides can be used for the detection of spoilage organisms in hide and skin soaking liquors.

Fluid Sampling:

  1. Remove the dipslide from it tube and immerse in the liquid to be tested for about 10 seconds.
  2. Remove the dipslide from the liquid and allow draining for a few seconds. Replace the slide in the tube and incubate for 24 – 48 hours.
  3. At the end of the incubation period, read the results against the chart provided with the dipslides.

Surface Sampling:

  1. Remove the contact slide from its tube and press against the surface to be tested.
  2. Turn the slide over and repeat the procedure with the second side.
  3. Replace the slide in to the tube and incubate for 24 – 48 hours.
  4. At the end of the incubation period, read the results against the chart provided with the dipslides.

Slides can be removed for assessment and comparison after 24 to 48 hours for bacteria and up to 5 days for yeast and moulds. You should then use the comparator chart provided with the Dipslides to determine the approximate number of colonies.

Dipsilde Description
BT2 Nutrient Agar with TTC*; Most Colonies show up as red spots. Ideal for general use in a wide variety of applications and industries. This slide offers a total count on both sides.
PC2 Plate Count agar; a good general growth medium suitable for all total count applications, but of particular use for dairy applications. This slide offers a total count on both sides.
PC2T As above, with the addition of TTC* "Red Spot Dye". This slide offers a total count on both sides.
BTM2 Nutient Agar with TTC* and Malt Extract Agar; Malt Extract Agar is a growth medium for yeasts and moulds, which reduces bacterial growth. High levels of bacteria can overwhelm the suppression. This slide offers a total count on one side and Yeasts and Moulds on the other.
RBS Tryptone Soya Agar with TTC* and Rose Bengal Agar; Rose Bengal is a selective Agar for yeasts and moulds, however, the antibiotic content can cause interference with the total count reading. This slide offers a total count on one side and a yeasts and moulds on the other.
PO A Plate Count Agar and OGYE* Agar; OGYE is a selective Agar using Oxytetracycline. This antibiotic is sensative to temperature and should not be incubated at temperatures above 25 deg C. This slide is ideal for food microbiology and includes neutralisers for the most common germicides. This slide offers a total count on one side and a yeasts and moulds on the other.
BRB2 Rose Begal Agar; for yeasts and moulds only. Rose Bengal is taken up by small colonies, which show up as pink dots and are easier to count. This slide offers yeasts and moulds count on both sides.
SC2 A Plate Count Agar and MacConkey3 Agar; MacConkey3 is a coliform specific Agar that surpresses all non Coliform bacteria. The Coliform group includes most of the important causative organisums of food poisoning. The plate count agar gives general count of viable aerobic organisums. This slide offers a total count agar on one side and a coliform agar on the other.
SCN As above, but including neutralisers for the most common germicides. This slide improves the recovery of sub lethally damaged organisums, which could cause problems if left, but which do not normally show up on culture plates because traces of disinfectant have been transferred. This slide is most useful for assesing the effectivness of cleaning procedures. This slide offers a toatl count on one side and a coliform count on the other.
SCT This is the same slide as the SC2 but with the addition of TTC* "Red Spot Dye" in the plate count Agar. This slide offers a total count on one side and a coliforms count on the othe
PCV Plate Count Agar and VRBG** Agar. VRBG** is a bile based medium without lactose, and is selective for Enterobacteriaceae. This group includes coliforms. Plate Count is a general growth Agar. This slide offers a total count on one side and a Enterobacteriaceae on the other.
TV As Above, but includes neutralisers for the most common germicides. This slide offers a total count on one side and a Entrobacteriaceae on the other.
TP Nutient Agar and Pseudomonas CFC Agar; for the detection of all Pseudomonas species. This slide offers a total count on one side and a Pseudomonas count on the other side.
TT2 Cled Agar and MacConkey3 Agar; Standar urine dipslide, useful for a wide variety of screening tests. This slide represents a considerable saving in time and money over standar MSU techniques. Dual media slides give more information than single media types. This slide offers total count on one side and a coliform on the other.
BV Baird Parker Agar and VRBG** Agar for Staphylococci and Enterobacteriaceae. This slide offers a Staphylococci count on one side and an Enterobactericeae count on the other side.
E VRBG** Agar; Enterobacteriaceae. This slide offers a Enterobacteriaceae count on both sides.
BP Baird Parker Agar; Staphylococci. This slide offers a Staphylococci count on both sides.
