CLED (Cystine-Lactose-Electrolyte Deficient) agar tests for total count (urinary organisms) and MRS (de Man, Rogosa and Sharpe) agar tests for lactic acid bacteria.
This slide is ideal for clinical applications. This slide will indicate the presence of lactobacilli in urine samples and supports the growth of all urinary pathogens.
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.
Using the CL/MRS Dipslide
Testing with this slide would be best conducted with the patient giving a urine sample which the dipslide can then be immersed in.
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile CL/MRS 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 CL/MRS 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 CL/MRS 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.
