    Hello Christine, Yes, these dipslides test for bacteria (total count with red spot dye) on one side and yeasts and moulds on the other. These dipslides have a minimum of 6 month's shelf life. Shipping is calculated during the checkout once an address is provided.

    Hello, Do these show the current bacteria, yeast and mold present in your products or do the test accelrate the growth process. Answer:
    Hello Sam, The slides show the current bacteria, yeast and mould present in the sample at the time of testing.

    Do these kits contain animal extracts ? I understand the nutrient is usually meat extract and wish to avoid this. Thanks Answer:
    Hello Dawn, All agars contain gelatin. All ingredients are listed in the datasheets available at the bottom of the page.

    Can you keep the test for longer than the recommended 120 hours if you are trying to determine the shelf life of your products? Answer:
    Hello Sam, Yes, you can incubate the slides for a longer time if required.

    Sorry, I have another question. I recently opened a small online body care business. I want to make sure that my products are free from bacteria and mold, as I don't use artificial preservatives in my products. Unfortunately, I am a new business and don't have enough money for the incubator only the slides. I know the incubator keeps the slide at a constant temperature. If the slides are not maintained at a consistent temperature will the results be accurate? I live in a very warm climate, If condensation builds up in the tubes will this affect the accuracy of the test? Answer:
    Hello Sam, Dipslides need a constant temperature for the results to be accurate. As such, we do not recommend using dipslides without an incubator as the reading may be incorrect (e.g. not all the bacteria / mould could have grown / be visible). Condensation is normal in the tubes as this is the moisture evaporating from the agar.
