Environmental sampling / testing (air and surface sampling) is essential in certain industries to help safeguard products from microbiological contamination.
These industries include:
- Food Factories
Dipslides are a convenient way of carrying out environmental testing. There is no need to prepare the culture media before testing and the paddle design makes it much easier to test surfaces than alternatives such as contact plates. Dipslides also have a longer shelf life than alternative products. Being able to test with two agars at once is also an advantage.
Our TSA/ME slides test for a total count and yeasts and moulds. These slides have Tryptone soya agar on one side of the dipslide with Environmental Agar on the other. TSA/ME is a general purpose dipslide that is ideal for environmental testing. Includes lecithin and tween neutralisers.
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 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.
How to use the TSA/ME dip slide
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 120 hours).
A comparison chart is included so you can easily compare your results.
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile Environmental dip slide from its tube ensuring that no contact is made with the agar (to avoid contamination).
Step 2 : If Surface Testing
For surface testing, press the Environmental dipslide onto the surface. If needed, place a finger on the bottom of the slide (on the plastic, not the agar) to apply extra pressure.
Step 2 : If liquid testing
For liquid testing, immerse the Environmental dipslide into the fluid for 10 seconds then remove and allow to drain for a few seconds.
Step 2 : If swab testing
Apply a sample of the test substance to a sterile swab and gently apply to the agars.
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.
We also offer double sided TSA and double sided MEA dipslides that could be used for gloved fingertip testing. You can find links to these dipslides below:
