Dipslides are used to monitor microbial presence in industrial and process aqueous fluids, including cooling towers. The test can be performed on-site. The results of these tests can assist in the correct usage of biocides in industrial processes.

Side 1: Nutrient Agar with Triphenyltetrazolium Chloride (TTC)
Side 2: Nutrient Agar with Triphenyltetrazolium Chloride (TTC)

Nutrient agar is a general purpose agar medium containing two peptones that supports the growth of a wide variety of microorganisms. A small quantity of 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride (TTC) is added to facilitate bacterial colony visualization. Bacterial colonies appear as red dots. To determine the number of colony forming units (CFU), compare the density of the colonies on the dipslide with the included chart. Colorless colonies should be included in the comparison. It is the number of colonies and not their size that is important.

Dipslides should be stored at room temperature
(20 – 25 °C) (68 – 77 °F) and protected from light. DO NOT FREEZE.
