About the cystine lactose electrolyte deficient (cled) + violet red bile glucose (vrbg) dipslides (box of 10)
The CV Dipslide features two different agars (culture medium). One side has CLED (Cystine lactose electrolyte deficient) agar. This agar tests for total count bacteria in urinary organisms and supports the growth of all urinary potential pathogens. The other side has VRBG (Violet red bile glucose) agar. This agar tests for the presence of Enterobacteriaceae.
Enterobacteria are a common cause of urinary tract infections and can be present in urine samples. These slides would be ideal for clinical samples.
Industry sectors include
- Urinary bacteriology
If your sample contains microbiological contaminants, colonies will grow on the dipslide agars. You can then count the colonies on the agar and compare with the included chart to assess the level of infection.
The dipslide box includes 10 dipslides with each dipslide housed within a shatterproof plastic tube.
Using the CV Dipslide
To test a urine sample, once the patient has collected a sample, immerse the slide within it for 10 seconds then incubate.
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile CV 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 CV 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 CV 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.
CV 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.
