About Our tryptone soya (tsa) + tryptone soya (tsa) (neutralisers) dipslides (box of 10)

This dipslide features TSA agar on both sides and gives a total count. The Tryptone Soya agar is also supplemented with lecithin and Tween and can be used as a Microbial Content Test Agar. Therefore this dipslide is ideal for testing areas that have been treated with disinfectant.

It comes in a pack size of 10 slides per box. The slide has a flexible paddle and is located in a shatterproof container. 

Flexable paddle

Flexible Paddle

Each TSA dipslide features a virtually unbreakable and flexible paddle allowing for even, full surface testing.

Easy run off design

Easy Run Off Design

Due to the design of the TSA dipslide, fluids will drain off quickly during testing.

Recessed Handle

Recessed Handle

Each TSA slide has a handle built into the lid that is recessed to help keep your fingers dry during testing

Side Indicator

Side Indicator

One side of the slide will have a circle indicator so you know which side was used for testing which type of contaminant.

Dual sided paddle

Dual Sided

Each TSA dipslide is dual sided to allow multiple testing with one slide.

Thick reliable Agar

Thick Reliable Agar

Each TSA agar is thick (approx 4mm) and raised above the dipslide to allow for easy surface testing.

This dipslide can be used for pharmaceutical testing and complies with acceptable formulations approved by many international pharmacopoeia.

How to use the TSA dipslide

Simply remove the dipslide and immerse in (or press 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 48 hours).

A comparison chart is included so you can easily compare your results.
