Accepta's Incubator8 is supplied ready for mains power or 12v uses as standard, and features our world standard plug and power adaptor - all ready to go!

The incubator uses tried and tested solid state temperature control technology and the heat reservoir chassis guarantee superb heat distribution without any fans or moving parts, and only 1.2Kg in total weight!

Incubation of Dip slides

Dip slides are used to establish if the conditions present in a water system have the potential to encourage bacteria to multiply and grow.  Once the sample has been collected the dipslide must be incubated at a constant temperature of 30°C for 48 hours to obtain a true result.

A dipslide incubator is a critical component of any microbiological monitoring and control programme.  A constant, carefully regulated incubation temperature is essential.

A lower incubation temperature may mean that the bacteria on the dip slide will grow more slowly and give a erroneous, low reading. 

If the slide reading is artificially low then the treatment engineer may conclude that no corrective action is necessary and the system bacteria will be free to multiply and increase the risk to public health.

Conversely, if the incubation temperature is too high then the bacterial growth may be accelerated leading to a potentially false positive. This false high bacteria count can lead to unnecessary and expensive extra cleaning and treatment processes.

The UK Health & Safety Executives Approved Code of Practice and Guidance (ACoP) L8 dealing with the control of legionella bacteria in water systems requires weekly monitoring of microbiological activity. This can be achieved using Accepta's dipslides and incubators.
