On this page you will find all the necessary instruction for the storage and disposal dipslides to ensure they are handled in the safest possible way.

Storage of Dipslides

Store dipslides in a cool dry place, the optimum constant temperature should be between 8° - 15°C.


Use before the expiry date on the box. Do not use slides if there is any sign of growth before opening. Slides remain usable while the agar is smooth and attached to the slide.


A small amount of water may collect in the bottom of the tube. This is condensation from the agar and does not affect performance, provided the agar still fills the tray.

Safe Disposal of Dipslides

Used dipslides should be incinerated, autoclaved or soaked in disinfectant for several hours before disposal.
