These flexible dual-agar paddles each contain microbe-specific media enclosed in a sterile vial. Identify and quantify microbes in air, soil, and water or on any surface. BioPaddles® do not require any other testing equipment—only a magnifier and a 35° C warm place (or incubator) to incubate. BioPaddle® products include access to the free LaMotte® BioPaddles® Colony ID™ lite app for comparison of "unknown" microbe growth on the BioPaddle® to a library of photos. Each box includes 10 two-sided paddles for 20 total testing surfaces. Use Nutrient Agar BioPaddle® (item #653577) for routine culture of non-fastidious bacteria. Use Sabouraud Dextrose BioPaddle® (item #653578) for selective cultivation of fungi (yeasts and molds). Use Tryptic Soy/Rose Bengal BioPaddle® (item #653579) for the cultivation of a wide variety of microorganisms (TSA) and selective isolation of yeasts and molds (RB). Use Nutrient TTC/MacConkey BioPaddle® (item #653580) for field sampling, cultivation, and enumeration of coliform bacteria total colony counts (TCC). Note: These items are shipped via ground from the manufacturer in Maryland on Mondays and Tuesdays only, and delivered Wednesday through Friday only (depending on delivery location). Please allow 2 weeks advance notice with specific Monday or Tuesday shipping date.

 
 
 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Very simple to use. The container stays sterile until you open it, there is a fill line -- that's initially difficult to locate, but once found, it's easy to see. You fill the container to the line, close it, and wait the appropriate contact time, then drain and reseal the chamber. The leftover liquid maintains the appropriate humidity within the sealed container. Then you just need to incubate at a stable temperature. Even room temperature will work, although the incubation time will be longer, and the "end time" will be more difficult to determine. If you need to count and measure colonies, they have 4mm posts buried within the medium to help you to estimate size and number of colonies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplified sampling method. BioPaddles make sampling of water much easier. With the recapping of the product after sampling, you minimize the possibility of contamination by another source later. Works great in the field. Definitely worth the price difference when compared to traditional plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for school projects I bought these Biopaddles for a school project I was doing on the effects of essential oils on common bacteria flora. They exceeded my expectations! Its cool design makes it sealed more than a normal petri dish, which was perfect for my experiment. I would recommend this for anyone who needs a compact, fast growing agar plate.
