Transport swabs and microbiology swabs: A mix of throat swabs, pertusis swabs, culture swabs, charcoal swabs, nasopharyngeal swabs with amies transport medium.  Transwab® from MWE is the world’s first commercial self-contained gel transport swab for aerobes and anaerobes, and still the leader for reliable collection and transport of microbiological specimens.

M40-A2 Compliant Amies medium with inorganic buffer ensures maintenance of microorganisms without overgrowth. The open weave rayon bud is non-toxic and allows best specimen uptake and release, particularly for microorganisms There is a choice of shaft; straight plastic for most specimens whilst the duo allows multiple body site sampling, e.g. for MRSA, or for additional near patient testing. Straight and flexible twisted wire shafts are appropriate for urethral and nasopharyngeal sampling. Colour coded caps allow easy matching of swab to specimen type.
