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 ID lite App allows users to compare the “unknown” microbe growth on the BioPaddle to a library of images of “known” microbe colonies from 5 microhabitats (air, water, soil, surface and food).
