Plate Count TTC (PCA) + Plate Count TTC (PCA) Dipslides (Box of 10)
The PC2T dipslide (plate count TTC) supports the growth of total count bacteria on both sides. Includes TTC (red spot dye) which means that colonies appear as red dots and are easier to count.

The PC2T dipslide provides total count bacteria on the front side and also on the rear, ideal for dairy industry. It is similar to the PC2 but the growth is shown as total count (red spot) on both sides of the slide.
It comes in a pack size of 10 slides per box. The slide has a flexible paddle and is located in a shatterproof container.
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.
Plate Count Agar - Used to test for viable organisms in dairy and water, plate count agar is used for total count applications. The addition of red spot dye makes the colonies easy to view and count as they appear as red spots.
How to use the PC2T dipslides
Simply remove the dipslide and immerse in (or press against) the sample for approx 10 seconds. Remove dipslide and allow to drain (if necessary) 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 Plate Count TTC 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 Plate Count TTC 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 Plate Count TTC 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.
