About the potato dextrose (pot dex) + tryptone soya (tsa) dipslides (box of 10)
The PDTSA Dipslide features two different agars (culture medium). One side has Potato Dextrose agar. This agar tests for fungal colonies in dairy / food products. The other side has TSA agar. This agar measures a total count (variety of micro organisms).
If your sample contains microbiological contaminants, colonies will grow on the dipslide agars. You can then count the colonies and compare with the charts provided to assess the level of contamination.
Each box contains 10 dipslides with each dipslide housed within a shatterproof plastic tube.

Using the PDTSA Dipslide
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile PDTSA 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 PDTSA 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 PDTSA 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.
PDTSA 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.
