Plate Count Agar (PCA) tests for organisms / total growth present in samples (in particular dairy products). The Baird Parker Agar tests for staphylococci in food including dairy.
The combination of these two agars make this slide particularly ideal for the dairy industry. This dipslide is a special item and therefore requires a production run.
Each BPP dipslide features a virtually unbreakable and flexible paddle allowing for even, full surface testing.
Easy Run Off Design
Due to the design of the BPP dipslide, fluids will drain off quickly during testing.
Each BPP 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 BPP dipslide is dual sided to allow multiple testing with one slide.
Thick Reliable Agar
Each BPP agar is thick (approx 4mm) and raised above the dipslide to allow for easy surface testing.
How to use the BPP dip slide
Step 1 : Remove slide
Carefully remove the sterile BPP 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 BPP 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 BPP 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.
