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.

Pseudomonas Agar - This agar detects pseudomonas species.

MacConkey 3 Agar - This agar detects coliforms. Coliforms are an indicator organism for hygiene levels and this agar is utilised in a variety of testing applications.

How to use the PM dipslides
