 Product Description

Why do I need to use Dipslides?

Since 2001, the weekly monitoring of bacteria levels in cooling water is recommended from legislators and professional bodies. The weekly monitoring is an indicator as to how well the system is performing and identify any problems in house. A visual performance indicator, such as a Dipslide, is an effective, safe, fast and reliable way to see any establishing changes or trends and the extent of the presence of bacteria in the system. This knowledge will then highlight if and what remedial action is needed. To ensure successful and accurate results please consider purchasing an incubator to add to your water hygiene equipment (please see our ranges for different sizes for different requirements).

It is important to know that monitoring is not a substitute for treatment; this should be assessed by a water hygiene company, such as ourselves - please see www.dcswaterhygiene.co.uk for more information - whereby an assessment will be created and the required treatment will be advised. 

Our Dipslides

Dip slides allow simple screening without the need for microbiological skills to interpret results or Petri-dish plate methods. The dual surface paddle is coated with specially formulated pre-hydrated long life agar (culture media) and is supplied sterile and ready to use. The paddle has one side of Nutrient + tcc and Malt Extract on the reverse; this Dipslide is used for general use, specifically helping to detect yeast and moulds.  There are other varieties of Dipslides which will detect different bacterias - should you require a specific Dipslide please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss this. The Dipslides we provide are BTM2 - as previously mentioned, detecting bacteria on one side and yeast on the other. 

Our dual surface paddles are housed in a clear styrene tube. This keeps the agar hydrated and sterile prior to use. The typical use by life is 6 to 9 months depending on manufacture date and agar specification or test range.

  • Simple to use and convenient
  • Supplied sterile and ready to use
  • Inexpensive
  • Flexible paddle for surface readings
  • Supplied in boxes of 10
  • Results for most tests are evident in around 24 to 48 hours.
  • Essential part to any successful Water Hygiene routine.

 Please visit our Incubator page to find an incubator suitable for your water hygiene monitoring needs.


1. Proir to use, please keep the slides in a cool place. The slide is opened, care must be taken not to touch the media or expose to the atmosphere in order to prevent contamination.

2. The sample should be taken in a clear container, free from any detergents. When ready the Dipslide is submerged to just above the top of the culture media for around 2 seconds, then gently shaken to remove excess fluid before replacing in the tube.

3. Place the slide into the Incubator for a period of 48 hours. Incubating is vital for accurate results (please see our other products to find the appropriate incubator for your Dipslides).

4. After the incubation period, interpretation can be taken against the supplied chart, by roughly counting the number of dots. If they are faint, incubation for a little longer may be required. We are able to supply other variations of Dipslides which are specific to what you are wanting to be identified.

    Very easy to order/pay. Delivery prompt and communication excellent. I order these frequently and have them delivered directly to various sites around the UK all done quick andeasy over the internet, and in the 4 years or so I have never had a problem. My only comment is the outer packagaing could be better.
