Scigiene’s Nutrient Agar with TTC dipslide is ideal for microbial counts of ( aerobic, heterotrophic) bacteria that will appear as RED (due to the TTC).

Easy to use and safe we can detect bacteria in water or on surfaces with a 9 month shelf life due to our superior quality.

Ideal for any Environmental monitoring program to detect potential microbial problems. Call us to inquire about other species.

They should be stored at room temperature, but care should be taken to avoid frequent temperature changes.

To use the dipslide, you can either dip the slide into your sample, swab onto the dipslide or press the slide against a surface. Once your sample has been transferred onto the dipslide, you then incubate the dipslide (See incubator options below).  After incubation, you can then count the colonies / spots and compare with the chart provided.
