General Information:

Dipslides are a simple swabbing and sampling device for assessing microbial contamination. The paddle is permanently attached to the easy to grip cap, which is contained within a clear plastic shatterproof chamber. Each box of 10 dipslides (1 pack) is batch numbered for quality control purposes.
Dipslides typically come with a use by date of 4 - 9 months, dependent on the manufacture cycle and type of dipslide. 
Your Dipslides should ideally be stored at around 15 degrees C ; they can be stored in higher or lower temperatures so long as the tempreature is not fluctuating. Dipslides should be stored in cool
dry conditions, but not in a refrigerator. Every care is taken to ensure your Dipslides reach you in a perfect condition.

Dipslides are supplied in boxes of 10 individual slides together with identification labels, user instructions and a comparator chart to quantify and interpret growth results.
