Bacteriological Testing

Method Dipslide Incubation
Standards Manufacturer Method

What is it used for?

Bacteriological testing by dip slide is used for determining the levels of total bacteria, yeast and mold that can be cultivated from a fuel, coolant or cutting fluid sample, to see whether it is suitable for use and/or it presents a potential health risk.


How does it work?

An agar slide is dipped into a sample of the liquid to be tested, before incubation for a number of days.  The slide is reviewed for growth of each of the species.


What do the results tell us?

The results tell us a total count (bacteria), yeast content and mold content.
