About the cystine lactose electrolyte deficient (cled) + macconkey 3 dipslides (box of 10)

The TTS dip slide is a dual media slide for clinical applications. This dipslide features two agars (culture medium), one on each side. This uti / urine testing dipslide has CLED agar on one side. CLED agar measures a total count (urinary organisms). The other side of the dipslide has MacConkey 3 agar which detects coliforms.

CLED agar - This agar is used for urine diagnostics and supports the growth of urinary potential pathogens. A viable count of urinary organisms is detected using this agar.

MacConkey3 - For the detection of coliforms. In this case, the agar is used in clinical applications.

If the sample contains urinary organisms or coliforms, colonies will grow on the dipslide. You can count the colonies and compare with the chart provided to assess the level of contamination.

These come in a pack size of 10 slides per box. The slide has a flexible paddle and is located within a shatterproof container. 

Industry sectors include

  • Clinical
  • Urine bacteriology
