About the plate count agar ttc and plate count agar ttc (neutralisers) dipslides (box of 10)
Plate Count Agar TTC & Neutraliser
The PC2TN dipslide has Plate Count Agar (culture medium) on both sides. Plate count agar measures a total viable count. This dipslide also has the addition of TTC red spot dye. If your sample has microbiological contaminants in it, colonies will grow on the dipslide. Due to the addition of TTC red spot dye, the colonies will grow as red dots. You count the red dots and compare with the chart provided to assess the level of contamination.
This dipslide also includes neutralisers. Neutralisers are added to agars to 'neutralise' the effect of disinfectants / germicides. This is useful if you wish to test the efficacy of disinfectants / germicides.
Plate count agar is recommended for dairy and food applications.
These PC2TN dipslides are available in boxes of 10.
- General applications
- Dairy / food
- Environmental Testing

How to use PC2TN Dipslides
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile Plate Count Agar 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 Plate Count Agar 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 Plate Count Agar 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.
PC2TN 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.
