About the rose bengal + rose bengal dipslides (box of 10)
The BRB2 Dip Slide tests for / allows growth of moulds and yeasts on both sides. Rose Bengal Agar (culture media) is attached to both sides of the dipslide. Rose Bengal agar tests for yeasts and moulds only. Rose Bengal shows growth of small colonies, which often show up as pink dots and are easier to count (mould growth may show as fluffy / powdery colonies).
Rose Bengal agar contains an antibiotic that suppresses the growth of bacteria ensuring a better result for yeasts and moulds.
These dipslides comes in a pack size of 10 slides per box. The dipslide has a flexible paddle and is within a shatterproof container.
You can either dip the slide into your sample, swab onto the dipslide or press the slide against a surface. Once your sample has been transferred onto the dipslide, you then incubate the dipslide. After incubation, you can then count the colonies / spots and compare with the chart provided.

How to use the BRB2 Dipslides
Simply remove the dipslide and immerse in (or pressed against) the sample for approx 10 seconds. Remove dipslide and allow to drain (if necessary) 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 120 hours).
A comparison chart is included so you can easily compare your results.
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile Rose Bengal 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 Rose Bengal 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 Rose Bengal 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.
BRB2 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.
