Diesel Bug Test Kits

In order to effectively treat contamination with biocide, levels of bacterial and fungal growth must be routinely monitored by microbial testing. The FA-ST diesel bug test kit makes determination of these microbial counts fast and easy and is unique in that both measurements can be made simultaneously. FA-ST bacteria and fungi test kits contain dip slides coated with an agar culture medium. Each test kit is complete and ready to use. No special equipment or training is necessary.

Each side of the diesel bug test kits is coated with a different medium, one side being selective for fungi and the other for bacteria. Almost all aerobic bacteria will grow on the side designated for those organisms. Their growth will be in the form of red dots, also known as colonies, on the surface of the agar. The dip slide is compared to a chart in order to get a quantitative interpretation of the results. 

Most fungi (yeast and mould) that contaminate aqueous industrial systems will grow on these dip slides. On the side designated for fungi, growth of yeast and mould will generally appear as cottony, filamentous structures. The reacted dip slide is compared to a colour chart from which an estimated fungal count can be made.

The FA-ST Diesel Bug Test Kit has a six month shelf life. It can be stored in the refrigerator or at room temperature, but care should be taken to avoid frequent temperature changes.
Technical service related to the use of the Bacteria and Fungi Test Kit is provided free of charge. Full user information is supplied with every kit.
