Dipslide Incubators For Water Testing – Choose The Right One For Your Needs

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recommends the use of dipslides to monitor the levels of ‘aerobic’ bacteria in many different environments (so counts can be obtained). The dip slide test consists of a sterile reactive agar on a plastic paddle that is dipped into the sample liquid, or pressed onto the surface. The dip-slide is then placed in a microbiological dipslide incubator (for water testing) for a fixed period of time, at a fixed temperature to allow the bacteria to grow.
