MWE has been established for 70 years and has always been known for providing pre-analytics to the clinical industry that are compliant, excellent quality and manufactured to international standards. We were the inventors of the first transport swab, now used as the de facto in the industry. Our products are used worldwide in laboratories and in research organisations in genomics, new variant testing, or even testing for new products.
Our products are also used in other industries outside of clinical.
Within Food and Pharma MWE’s swabs, surface wipes, sponges and kits are designed to collect and transport bacterial samples, working across all surfaces, with a variety of sampling applicators. MWE also provides sample collection devices to determine the level of microorganisms on sterile surfaces, especially needed for the pharmaceutical industry.
The collection device is a critical component in any investigation in Forensics, and that careful attention to materials and manufacturing techniques are essential to ensure the integrity of the sample. MWE have dedicated swabs that have special features suitable for scene of crime forensic sampling. Tested with the most stringent standards, MWE swabs are certified DNA free and are produced under dedicated, controlled conditions ensuring complete reliability and integrity of samples.
The quality and dependability of veterinary laboratory consumables underpins the reliability of diagnostic tests, analysis, and research outcomes. MWE range of Veterinary swabs, include several longer swabs particularly suited to large animals. In some, the long shaft is enclosed in a silicone sheath into which the swab head can be withdrawn as the swab is retrieved from the sampling site.
MWE provides products for the Environmental industry for larger surface sampling in critical areas such as manufacturing. MWE’s products enable reliable sampling for monitoring hygiene and sterility of larger surfaces. The choice of formulations meets the requirements of industries or retailers and can provide early detection for key pathogens.
We are more than just Clinical.
