Scigiene Plate Count dipslide tests for total count bacteria on both sides. It features plate count agar (culture medium) which grows / detects viable organisms in water, food and dairy products. The growth on this slide appears as red dots making the colonies easier to view and count.
If your sample has bacteria in it, the bacteria will grow as colonies / red dots on the dipslide. You can then count the dots and compare with the chart provided to assess the level of microbial contamination.
Contamination by bacteria on surface or in aqueous industrial environments can lead to many quality issues or product failures.
