  • Broad variety of dipslides to fit 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
This dipslide has a dual agar that can simultaneously detect the total bacterial count and E. coli bacteria. Each bacterial species is identified with different colourings for easier counting. The paddles are coated with nutrient agar with TTC addition as well as chromogenic E. coli agar and are compliant with the HSG282 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.
  • Easy application - fast results
    For liquids: Remove the dipslide from the container by the grip, dip both sides of the culture medium carrier into the sample liquid and slide it back into the outer covering of the container.
    For surfaces: To ensure that both sides of the culture medium slide come into close contact with the surface, remove the dipslide from the container and wipe the culture medium slide 2 times over the affected surface. To do this, bend the flexible upper end of the culture medium carrier so that the culture medium is in direct contact with the surface.
    After sampling, incubate the dipslides immediately at 30 to 35 °C for 24 to 48 hours - for fungi & moulds for up to 5 days.
  • 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.
