Tryptone Soya Agar shows growth for a wide range of fastidious and non fastidious organisms.
SAB DEX agar is an acidic pH Agar. It tests for fungi and inhibits the growth of bacteria, making it easier to view fungal colonies.
This dipslide is recommended for environmental testing.
How to use the TSA / SAB DEX Dipslide
Simply remove the dipslide and immerse in the sample (or press against sample) for approx 10 seconds. Remove dipslide and allow to drain 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 that you can easily compare your results.
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile TSA/SAB DEX 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 TSA/SAB DEX 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 TSA/SAB DEX 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.
