The dip slide has replaced the lengthy traditional method of plate testing and is a safe, reliable, economical and fast indicator of the presence of bacteria. Supplied sterile, the slide can be used on site – sampling taking just a few seconds. The results are easily read after just 24 – 48 hours. If bacteria are present, samples can be sent to a lab for identification and the appropriate remedial action can then be taken. Dip slide incubators are essential in order to incubate the slides at the correct temperature depending on the type of bacteria that you are looking for. We stock a range of incubators to suit all size requirements.
