LaMotte® Tryptic Soy/Rose Bengal BioPaddles®, Box of 10

(ships from manufacturer, est arrival 6/2/22)


Flexible dual-agar paddle containing microbe-specific media (enclosed in a sterile vial) for routine culture of non-fastidious bacteria. BioPaddles® do not require any other testing equipment—only a magnifier and a 35° C warm place (or incubator) to incubate. Includes access to the free LaMotte® BioPaddles® Colony ID™ lite app for comparison of "unknown" microbe growth on the BioPaddles® to a library of photos. Each box includes ten 2-sided paddles for 20 total testing surfaces. For liquid sampling: Remove the paddle from the vial and fill the vial (approximately 40 mL) with the sample. Insert the paddle, swirl for 15 sec. Pour out the liquid, and replace the paddle in the vial and incubate. For surface sampling: Remove the paddle from the vial and gently touch each paddle media surface to the sample surface twice per side. Replace paddle in the vial and incubate. For air sampling: Remove the paddle from the vial. Invert and mount the circular cap into the vial, exposing the agar-covered paddle. Expose for 15 min. Replace the paddle in the vial and incubate.
