TRANSWAB® STUART’S is a single swab with a rayon bud type. It is available with a STUART’s gel media. The formulation does not include magnesium chloride, and is recommended for certain molecular methods for MRSA. It  comes with a plastic shaft with either a single or two swabs. Two swabs are used for multiple testing or sampling from multiple sites.

These are available with Charcoal, where Charcoal is needed to neutralise bacterial toxins and other inhibitory substances.

Gel media is used in traditional culture techniques. It is also good for recovery of aerobes, anaerobes and fastidious organisms.

All our TRANSWAB® products are compliant with the CLSI standard M40-A2. This standard is for the Quality Control of Microbiological Specimen Transport Devices.
