BioPaddles dual-agar paddles

Unit Converter

BioPaddles™ are flexible dual-agar paddles each containing microbe-specific media enclosed in a sterile vial. Identify and quantify microbes in air, soil, water, or any surface! BioPaddles do not require any other testing equipment – only a magnifier and warm place (35°C or incubator) are needed.
 

  • Liquid Sampling: Remove the paddle from the vial and fill the vial (approximately 40ml) with the sample. Insert the paddle, swirl for 15 seconds. Pour out the liquid, and replace the paddle in the vial and incubate.
  • 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.
  • 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 minutes. Replace the paddle in the vial and incubate.


All BioPaddle™ products include a free app! LaMotte BioPaddle Colony Identification App lets users compare the “unknown” microbe growth on the BioPaddle to a library of photos of “known” microbe colonies from 6 microhabitats (clinical, air, water, soil, surface and food).

BioPaddle™ Products – all packaged 10 paddles per box. Includes a technical information sheet.

NOTE: Dated material. Specify ship date. Orders may be placed in advance. Orders are shipped Mondays and Tuesdays from Maryland.

BioPaddle™ - Food and Beverage
Code Type of agar(s) Description
5540 R2A / MacConkey For the cultivation and enumeration of bacteria from potable water, total coliform testing (TCC).
  • R2A selects for slow growing bacteria in stressed and chlorine treated water in potable water post-treatment condtions. Tests for E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and B. cereus.
  • MAC is for the detection and enumeration of coliform organisms. Medium gives improved differentiation between coliforms and non-lactose fermenting organisms. Gram (+) cocci are usually inhibited.
5541 NUT-TTC / EMB For the cultivation and enumeration of Coliform bacteria including TCC (Total Colony Counts). Non-selective, supports growth of a wide variety of organisms.
  • TTC for the cultivation and enumeration of coliform bacteria. Non-selective, supports the growth of a wide variety of organisms. Aerobic bacteria reduce 2,4,5 - triphenyltetrazolium chloride dye to a red colored formazan dye. Gram (-) bacterial colonies appear as red dots. Gram (+) bacteria are generally inhibited.
  • EMB (Eosin-Methylene Blue) is slightly selective for Gram (-) enteric microorganisms and inhibitive to Gram (+) bacteria. Differentiates coliforms. E. coli grows metallic green, Salmonella and Shigella grow amber to colorless, and other coliforms are blue-black.
5542 LIS/EMB For enumeration and selective isolation of Listeria spp. and total coliform (TCC)
  • LIS for selective isolation of Listeria spp. Selectivity is increased by adding various antimicrobial agents to inhibit most Gram (+) and (-) organisms after 24 hours of incubation.
  • EMB (Eosin-Methylene Blue) is slightly selective for Gram (-) enteric microorganisms and inhibitive to Gram (+) bacteria. Differentiates coliforms. E. coli grows metallic green, Salmonella and Shigella grow amber to colorless, and other coliforms are blue-black.
5543 HEK/SS For enumeration and selective isolation of pathogenic intestinal bacteria.
  • HEK isolates and differentiates Salmonella spp. Inhibits Gram (+) organisms. Salmonella colonies appear black and Shigella produces translucent green colonies.
  • SS isolates Salmonella spp. and some strains of Shigella spp. Inhibits Gram (+) bacteria, most coliform bacteria and swarming Proteus spp., while allowing Salmonella spp. to grow.
5544 MacConkey / EMB Isolation and differentiation of Gram (-) cocci enteric bacilli, coliform, and recovery of stressed coliforms.
  • MAC is for the detection and enumeration of coliform organisms. Medium gives improved differentiation between coliforms and non-lactose fermenting organisms. Gram (+) cocci are usually inhibited.
  • EMB (Eosin-Methylene Blue) is slightly selective for Gram (-) enteric microorganisms and inhibitive to Gram (+) bacteria. Differentiates coliforms. E. coli grows metallic green, Salmonella and Shigella grow amber to colorless, and other coliforms are blue-black.
5550 Nutrient For routine culture of non-fastidious bacteria.
5551 Sabouraud Dextrose For selective cultivation of fungi (yeasts and molds)
5552 Tryptic Soy (TSA) / Rose Bengal (RB) For cultivation of a wide variety of microorganisms (TSA) and selective isolation of yeasts and molds (RB).
5553 Nutrient TTC /
MacConkey
  • TTC. For field sampling cultivation and enumeration of coliform bacteria total coliform count (TCC). Gram (-) bacterial colonies appear as red dots. Gram (+) bacteria are usually inhibited.
  • MAC. Medium gives improved differentiation between coliforms and nonlactose fermenting organisms. Gram (+) cocci are usually inhibited.
NOTE: Dated material. Specify ship date. Orders may be placed in advance. Orders are shipped Mondays and Tuesdays from Maryland.
