About the tp | tryptone soya (tsa) + pseudomonas dipslides (box of 10)
These TP Dipslides feature two agars (prepared culture media), one on each side of the dipslide. The agars on this dipslide are:
TSA (Tryptone Soya) Agar - A general purpose medium used to test a wide variety of applications. It is a total count agar that promotes growth of a wide variety of fastidious and non fastidious organisms. This allows for an evaluation of the 'general health' of your sample.
Pseudomonas CFC Agar - This agar assists in the detection of all pseudomonas species. It is often used in meat as well as clinical, swimming pool and cosmetic applications.
This TP dipslide tests for total count bacteria on one side and a Pseudomonas count on the other side. If your sample contains bacteria, colonies will grow on the dipslide agar.
The TP dipslide comes in a pack size of 10 slides per box. The slide has a flexible paddle and is within a shatterproof container.
Will Pseudomonas aeruginosa grow on this dipslide?
Yes, p.aeruginosa will grow on the pseudomonas side of this dipslide. Growth will appear as straw coloured colonies with green pigmentation.
How do I use the TP dipslides?
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 48 hours).
Remove the Dipslide from the container and press against the surface for approx 10 seconds. Replace the slide back into the tub 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 TSA / Pseudomonas 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 TSA / Pseudomonas 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 TSA / Pseudomonas 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.
TP Dipslides 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 TP 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.
