About the kaa & violet red bile glucose (vrbg) dipslide (box of 10)
This dipslide tests for enterococci on one side and enterobacteriaceae on the other side.
The KAA agar is selective for the isolation of enterococci in food. The VRBG agar detects enterobacteriaceae in food and environmental samples.
Enterococci will present as white or grey colonies with black areas surrounding them.
Enterobacteriaceae will present as pink / purple colonies.
Any colonies present indicate infection / contamination of some sort.
Industry sectors include
- Animal Feed
Please note that dipslides should not come into contact with the body and that samples should be taken via swab or cup / tube before streaking on to the slide.
How to use the KAA & Violet Red Bile Glucose (VRBG) dipslides
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile KAA & Violet Red Bile Glucose (VRBG) 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 KAA & Violet Red Bile Glucose (VRBG) 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 KAA & Violet Red Bile Glucose (VRBG) 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 sample 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.
KV 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.
