Ready to use and no refrigeration required! BioPaddles® have a longer shelf-life than traditional Petri dishes and are very easy to use. Flexible dual-agar paddles are enclosed in a sterile vial. Simply expose the media to the sample and then keep in a warm place (35 °C).
• Liquid sampling: Add sample solution to the vial, insert the paddle and swirl. Pour out the liquid, replace the paddle in the vial and incubate. • Surface sampling: Remove the paddle from the vial and gently touch the media to the sample surface twice per side. Replace in the vial and incubate. • Air sampling: Remove the paddle from the vial, invert it and mount it to the vial. Replace the media end of the paddle in the vial and incubate.
Includes general instructions and access to detailed technical notes for each paddle type. Package of 10 paddles.
MacConkey/EMB paddles have MacConkey agar on one side and eosin methylene blue agar on the other side. Use MacConkey agar to differentiate between Gram negative bacteria while inhibiting the growth of most Gram positive bacteria. EMB agar inhibits growth of Gram positive bacteria while cultivating growth of Gram negative enteric microorganisms (bacilli). Pkg. of 10.
