Sani-Check - Model B - Test Kit - Dipslide for Detecting Bacteria
Contamination by bacteria in aqueous industrial environments can be responsible for failures in productivity resulting in economic loss. This is particularly true in metalworking fluids and stored hydrocarbon fuels, but the problem also exists in other industrial process and cooling waters.
Growth by bacteria in these systems can be responsible for corrosion, slime formation, foul odors, and decreases in fluid function. In order to effectively treat contamination with biocide, levels of bacterial growth must be routinely monitored. The Sani-Check B dipslide makes determination of these microbial counts fast and easy. Sani-Check B Test Kits contain dipslides coated with an agar culture medium. Each test kit is complete and ready to use. No special equipment or training is necessary.
Both sides of the dipslide are coated with a medium selective for bacteria. Almost all aerobic bacteria will grow on this medium and their growth will be in the form of red dots, also known as colonies, on the surface of the agar. The dipslide is compared to a chart in order to get a quantitative interpretation of the results.
The Sani-Check B Test Kit has a six month shelf life. It can be stored in the refrigerator or at room temperature, but care should be taken to avoid frequent temperature changes.
Technical service related to the use of Sani-Check B Bacteria Test Kit is provided free of charge. Biosan Laboratories is staffed with trained microbiologists who are available to assist you.
