Sigma TRANSWAB® is the world’s leading liquid amies transport for automated and conventional processing.
The original TRANSWAB® was the first commercially produced gel transport swab, and for many years has led the field for reliable microbiological specimen collection and transport. A programme of continuous development has kept TRANSWAB® ahead of changes in laboratory science and regulatory requirements, so that it remains a trusted partner in the diagnosis of infectious diseases.
The specimen is collected by swab & snapped into the tube of Liquid Amies Transport Medium. This process is enhanced by the incorporation of an open-celled foam-tipped swab which allows complete flow through of the liquid medium, reagents and microorganism. This increases the sensitivity of any diagnostic procedures.
The microorganisms from the initial specimen are released from the swab & dispersed throughout the medium, producing a uniform suspension ready for use, whether it’s for direct inoculation onto plates or into a broth, or for use with the many molecular diagnostics currently available.
∑–TRANSWAB® is compliant with the CLSI standard M40-A2. This standard is for the Quality Control of Microbiology Specimen Transport Devices.
Variations available for ENT, MRSA etc.
