About the closed circuit water system pseudomonas dipslides
Our closed circuit water system dipslides can be used to test both heated or chilled closed loop systems. These dipslides test for total bacteria count on one side and pseudomonas count on the other side. This gives you a broader view of the levels and types of bacteria that may be in your system.
If your closed circuit water sample contains bacteria, bacterial colonies will grow on the dipslide agar (culture medium). You can then count the colonies and compare with the chart provided to assess the level of contamination.
The agars on this dipslide are:
TSA (Tryptone Soya) Agar - A general purpose medium used to test a wide variety of applications. It is a total count agar that promotes growth of a wide variety of fastidious and non fastidious organisms. This allows for an evaluation of the 'general health' of your sample.
Pseudomonas CFC Agar - This agar assists in the detection of all pseudomonas species.
Why do I need to test for pseudomonas in closed circuit systems?
Pseudomonas bacteria can be particularly prevalent in closed systems and contributes to slime / biofilm formation. The buildup of bacteria and biofilm in these systems can cause operational issues such as:
- equipment failure
- system inefficiency
How to use the CCWS dipslides
Simply remove the dipslide and immerse in the sample for approx 10 seconds. Remove dipslide and allow to drain for a few seconds, then replace the slide back into the tube and incubate for a minimum of 24 hours (up to a maximum of 48 hours).
A comparison chart is included so you can easily compare your results.
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile Closed Circuit System dip slide from its tube ensuring that no contact is made with the agar (to avoid contamination).
Step 2 : Liquid testing
For liquid testing, immerse the Closed Circuit System dipslide into the fluid for 10 seconds then remove and allow to drain for a few seconds.
Step 3 : Incubate Slide
Label the tube with the included stickers then place the slide into an incubator and allow to incubate.
Step 4 : Compare results
Count the amount of colonies that have grown on the slide and compare them to the comparison chart provided.
Closed Circuit System Dipslides Features
Each dipslide features a virtually unbreakable and flexible paddle allowing for even, full surface testing.
Easy Run Off Design
Due to the design of the dipslide, fluids will drain off quickly during testing.
Each slide has a handle built into the lid that is recessed to help keep your fingers dry during testing.
One side of the slide will have a circle indicator so you know which side was used for testing which type of contaminant.
Each CCWS dipslide is dual sided to allow multiple contamination testing with one test.
Thick Reliable Agar
Each agar is thick (approx 4mm) and raised above the dipslide to allow for easy surface testing.
