Incubation of dipslides is an essential part of monitoring microbiological activity.  Incubators are designed to maintain a constant temperature ensuring that the microbiological culture growth is consistent each time a test is taken.

A lower temperature can mean the bacteria will grow more slowly and give a false low reading.  If your reading is artificially low then the treatment engineer will consider that no action is necessary and the bacteria will be free to multiply and increase the risk to public health.  Conversely if the temperature is high then the growth may be accelerated giving a false positive.  This false high bacteria count can lead to unnecessary and expensive extra cleaning and treatment processes.

Incubators provide peace of mind to the treatment engineers, show duty of care to the inspectorate and can save money in the long run.


The DTK Challenger incubator has a capacity to incubate 25 dipslides and the temperature can be adjusted between ambient and 45°C. The incubator has a transparent shatterproof lid which allows easy observation of the dipslides.

The Challenger is compact and has been specifically designed for those treatment engineers who have a routine requirement to monitor a large number of cooling towers while mobile.

This dipslide incubator can be set up in no time at all and has quick set reference points of 30 & 37°C.

Running on the supplied 220/240V mains power lead or an optional 12V power lead for use in a standard car lighter socket, it is protected by an internal fuse and has an over-temp protection for safe extended use.

Simplicity of operation, dipslide visibility, 30 minute minute warm up period means the incubation of your dipslides is safe inside the Challenger incubator.
