Broad variety of dipslides to fi t best for a given situation
Large surface area of 11.5 cm2 for high sensitivity
Effective contact area of 10 cm2 for easy calculation in surface testing
Media produced to meet ISO 11133
With the dual agar of this dipslide you can simultaneously detect the total number of bacteria and especially the Enterobacteriaceae. The agar surfaces contain TTC additive and MacConkey No. 3 agar. The measurements are conform to the APHA standard.
Classify and assess risks reliably Dipslides indicate the presence of microorganisms not only in water but also on surfaces, offering a semi-quantitative method of measurement. In most applications, microbiological risks can be reliably classified and assessed so that countermeasures can be initiated immediately, especially within the framework of monitoring and control programs that comply with standards and guidelines. For example, they can be used in the context of cooling tower hygiene in accordance with VDI 2047 to comply with the 42nd BImSchV, in order to detect biological fouling at an early stage and to prevent potential plant shutdown.
Versatile in all important applications Our dipslides offer valuable assistance in monitoring microbial growth wherever the potential can exceed 100 (102) organisms in one milliliter of sample liquid. These include, in particular, industrial water, industrial fluids, food manufacturing, dental practices, breweries, environmental hygiene, leather industry, fuels, dairy industry, pool & spas and cosmetics.
The flexible performance Flexible paddles & raised agar profile allow the user to test both surfaces and liquids. A dedicated app is provided to support evaluation & documentation.
Durability and correct use Dipslides have an average shelf life of 6-9 months, depending on the manufacturing cycle. They can be used after this date as long as no contamination or visible shrinkage is shown on the agar surface. Excess water in the bottom of the slide indicates that the storage temperature is too high. The Lovibond® Incubator for dipslides is available for correct incubation at constant temperature.
