About the pseudomonas + macconkey 3 dipslides (box of 10)
This dipslide features two different agars (prepared culture medium). It has Pseudomonas Agar on one side and MacConkey 3 Agar on the other side. This dipslide will test for pseudomonas on one side and coliforms on the other side.
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.
If your sample contains bacteria, colonies will grow on the dipslide. To interpret your dipslide results, you would count the colonies and compare with the chart provided.
PM Dipslide Applications
- Swimming pool and spa
- Food safety
These dipslides come in a pack size of 10 slides per box. The slide has a flexible paddle and is within a shatterproof container.
How to use the PM 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 Pseudomonas / MacConkey 3 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 Pseudomonas / MacConkey 3 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 Pseudomonas / MacConkey 3 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.
PM Dipslide 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 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.
