What are Dip Slides?

Our BLOXLABS TTC/Malt Agar Dip Slide is a combination dip slide comprising a paddle with a chamber on each side containing a different culture medium.

The paler medium is Nutrient Agar and Tetrazolium Chloride (TTC) for the determination of total aerobic count of an emulsion or any industrial fluid susceptible to microbiological contamination.

The darker medium is Malt Agar which provides a means of detecting yeast and mould contamination.

The paddle is attached to a plastic screw cap which screws into an air tight plastic test tube that remains sterile and moist until time of use.

All dip slides are supplied in boxes of 10 and come complete with simple instructions including comparison charts used to determine levels of contamination.
