INCUBATION OF DIPLIDE TESTS
Dipslides are used to establish and asses if the conditions present in a water system encourage bacteria to multiply. Once the sample has been collected the dipslide requires incubation at 30 °C for 48 hours to obtain a true result and consistently time after time.
A dipslide incubator is a critical element of microbiological monitoring. A lower temperature can mean the bacteria will grow more slowly and give a false low reading. If your reading is artificially low then the treatment engineer will consider that no action is necessary and the bacteria will be free to multiply and increase the risk to public health. Conversely if the temperature is high then the growth may be accelerated giving a false positive. This false high bacteria count can lead to unnecessary and expensive extra cleaning and treatment processes.
Approved code of practice and guidance for the control of legionella bacteria in water systems requires weekly monitoring of microbiological activity.
The DTK Challenger incubator has a capacity to incubate 20 dipslides and the temperature can be adjusted between ambient and 45°C. The incubator has a transparent shatterproof lid which allows easy observation of the dipslides.
The Challenger is compact and has been specifically designed for those treatment engineers who have a routine requirement to monitor a large number of cooling towers while mobile.
This dipslide incubator can be set up in no time at all and has quick set reference points of 30 & 37 °C.
Running on the supplied 220/240 V mains power lead or an optional 12 V power lead for use in a standard car lighter socket, it is protected by an internal fuse and has an over-temp protection for safe extended use.
Simplicity of operation, dipslide visibility, 30 minute minute warm up period means the incubation of your dipslides is safe inside the Challenger incubator.
