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 Cultura incubator has a capacity to incubate 18 dipslides and the temperature can be adjusted between 25 and 45 °C. The incubator has a transparent door which allows easy observation of the dipslides contained inside. It has an easy to remove tray which holds the the dipslides in place.

The Cultura is compact and can be located in a horizontal or vertical position so as space can be utilised efficiently. It has been specifically designed for those treatment engineers who have a routine requirement to monitor a small number of cooling tower and it looks good in an office as well as a plant room. Its functional clear door makes regular monitoring very convenient.
