Culture swabs liquid: ∑-Transwab®

-Transwabjpg

Liquid culture swabs from MWE called ∑-Transwab® are liquid culture swabs for automated and conventional processing of swab specimens.

This new specimen collection device which is M40-A Compliant, incorporates a screw cap tube and Liquid Transport Medium. The specimen is collected using ∑-Swab®, an open celled, polyurethane foam-tipped swab which allows complete flow through of reagents and micro-organisms. The specimen is then placed into the tube of liquid medium for transportation to the laboratory.

The micro-organisms in the specimen are dispersed through the medium, producing a uniform suspension ready for use, either conventionally or on an automatic specimen processing platform, or direct with many rapid molecular tests currently available. 

Please note: A selection of Sigma Swabs have had some minor enhancements in recent months.  To see the full detail please click here.
