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
- Urine bacteriology
How to use the TTS dipslides

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 CLED / 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 CLED / 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 CLED / 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.
TTS 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.
