Nutrient Agar with TTC; Most Colonies show up as red spots. Ideal for general use in a wide variety of applications and industries. This slide offers a total count on both sides.

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

Flexible paddle

Flexible Paddle

Each 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 dipslide, fluids will drain off quickly during testing.

Recessed Handle

Recessed Handle

Each 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 dipslide is dual sided to allow multiple contamination testing with one test.

Thick reliable Agar

Thick Reliable Agar

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

This agar contains red spot dye which helps the user view and count colonies as they appear as red spots. Nutrient agar will detect / show growth for a wide range of non fastidious organisms. Due to nutrient agar being able to cultivate such a wide variety of micro organisms, it is used in many industries. Applications range from classroom use to water, metalworking fluid and cooling water applications.

How to use the BT2 dipslide

Simply remove the dipslide and immerse in (or pressed 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.

HSE.gov.uk advice

Good control. Bacteria are being maintained at low levels. No further action is required.

Reasonable control. Review control measures to ensure levels of bacteria remain under control. Risk assessment should specify action to be taken. Biocides and or cleaning may be indicated. If biocides are used, expert advice should be obtained, and the concentration of biocides should be monitored

Poor control. Immediate action should be taken in line with the risk assessment. Normally at very high levels draining and cleaning, should take place.

Customer Questions

Q

Do you have to use incubator for this product? If your your room temp is already 21 degrees C.

A

Yes. The dip slide will need a constant 30 - 35 degrees C temperature for incubation. A room would vary in temperature and in turn can cause inaccurate results.

Q

I want to know expiration date

A

Hello, These items have a minimum shelf life of 6 months.

Q

Do you have a dip slide test kit for machine oils ... ? We have an oil which is used as a coolant, and it is recirculated around a grinding system indefinitely. It is not an emulsion.

A

Hello, We would suggest the metal cutting fluid test kit at https://dip-slides.com/30-kits.
