More info

This is the same slide as the SC2 but with the addition of TTC* "Red Spot Dye" in the plate count Agar. This slide offers a total count on one side and a coliforms count on the other. 

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

Dipslide Test

Plate Count Agar - The plate count agar features red spot dye which means that colonies show up as red spots. This makes them easy to view and count. Plate count is a standard growth medium for assessing a ‘total count’ of bacteria / viable organisms in a sample. It is used in a variety of applications but in particular food (specifically dairy) and water testing.

MacConkey3 Agar - This agar detects coliforms as well as salmonella and shigella organisms. Gram positive cocci are inhibited with this formulation. MacConkey3 is used to test food and water applications. It is also used to test faecal samples in the poultry and farming industry.
