Romer Labs offers HygieneChek™ dip slides which are an easy-to-use, reliable and economic microbiological testing system. They are a double-sided agar paddle which is used to detect and identify various microorganisms commonly found in food preparation areas, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

HygieneChek Coliform/Coliforms is a Violet Red Bile agar based dip slide which can be used for water testing and contamination checks in the public health and water industries for the detection and enumeration of coliforms. The only requirement for the cultivation of the bacteria on the HygieneChek dip slide is an incubator.

Coliforms are a group of gram-negative, rod shaped bacteria which can ferment lactose. The most common member of the coliform family, Escherichia coli, is commonly used as an indicator for the presence of faecal contamination.  Gram positive bacteria is typically inhibited on this agar.
