Liqui-CultTM test kits are an inexpensive Do-It-Yourself method to detect microbial and fungal growth in fluids in the laboratory and in the workplace. Areas of application include metalworking fluids, circulating cooling and process water, hydrocarbons (diesel fuel), and other liquids such as cleaners, cosmetics, liquid soaps, detergents, etc.
Liqui-CultTM testing determines the type and degree of infestation usually measured by the more expensive plate count system. To use, simply fill the 5 cc syringe (included in your kit) with the fluid to be tested. Inject the complete 5 cc’s through the rubber cap of the test bottle containing the liquid agar and shake it vigorously. Incubate for 30 hours for bacterial growth or 72 hours for fungal growth. Simply compare your sample’s color after incubation to sample pictures to determine the degree of bacterial & fungal growth.
Package contains one case of 10 test bottles, 10 syringes and instructions.
