As part of our Redipor® prepared media range we offer an extensive selection of injection vials and DIN bottles, from 5ml to 500ml. Sterility test broths and rinse solutions available in a choice of fill volumes.
All of these products are fitted with rubber injection stoppers and aluminium tear off seals and are supported with batch manufacturing and QC testing documentation.
Specialist products are available on request. We will consider any specific requirements and offer solutions wherever possible.
For Redipor media the Use By date is the last day on which the medium should be inoculated or exposed. Any incubation period that is normal for that product may begin on that day. For example a 14 day sterility test in TSB or a 5 day incubation for a TSA settle plate.
Dip slides can be less sensitive than contact plates or swabs and they often have less stringent QC release criteria. However there are circumstances where they have real advantages.
They are convenient and easy to use by the relatively less skilled.
They are ideal for testing water tanks and hygiene monitoring in food preparation and similarly clean but not aseptic environments. Most importantly they are ideal for field use because they are self contained and the slide can be incubated and assessed without opening the device.
