Dipslides - All you need to know

A dipslide is a means of testing the microbial content of liquids. This is a common method of monitoring and measuring microbial activity within many systems and commonly cooling systems. Usually the use of a dipslide is the first line of defence for the testing of microbial issues that could be caused to manufacturers and machine shop fluid systems. 

Dipslides consist of a plastic barrier which bears a sterile culture medium which can be dipped into the liquid being sampled. The resulting microbial colonies are estimated by reference to a chart. 

Dipslides are usually incubated for 48 hours after use and any subsequent bacteria in the sample water will grow and form colonies.

Why does my Bottle of pH Buffer State a Temperature on the Label?

Changes in temperature affect a pH reading. This is why you will usually see the temperature printed on the side of the bottle of pH buffer solutions. The buffer will be closest to its stated pH at that temperature (usually 20oC or 25oC) When calibrating a pH meter with automatic buffer recognition, it is recommended to use the correct buffer. So please check the manufacture's instructions ...

pH Importance in Biogas Production

Why is the pH Important? The correct mix of feedstock such as slurry, food waste and processed plant material is important to ensure efficient biomethane production. This combined feedstock (media) is broken down by microorganisms in a series of steps, resulting in the production of methane (methanogenesis). The pH of the media is an important consideration during this process. Values...
