Features and Benefits
  • Self-contained ready-to-use specimen collection and transport system
  • Swab(s) are mounted in the cap of a translucent plastic tube with sponge impregnated liquid transport media
  • For ear, nose, throat, eye, male urethral and pediatric specimen collection
  • Provide excellent recovery in routine bacteriology and is compatible with many rapid screening methods
  • The BBL CultureSwab Plus Collection and Transport System features Amies agar gel media with oxygen-scavenging agents, for sampling of both aerobic and anaerobic organisms
  • 5 mL gel column provides maximum specimen protection and improved sample viability
  • For throat, vaginal, skin and wound specimens
  • Packaging is flushed with nitrogen gas prior to closure - prevents unwanted media oxidation during storage to assure optimal performance
  • The BBL CultureSwab Collection and Transport System is designed for the collection and transport of aerobes
  • Double-action security cap creates a watertight seal preventing dried-out or leaky samples
  • For throat, vaginal, skin and wound specimens
  • The BBL CultureSwab Collection and Transport System is designed for the collection and transport of aerobes
  • Transport media (Liquid Stuart Medium) are non-nutritious, buffered with phosphate and provide a reduced environment due to their formulation with sodium thioglycollate
  • For throat, vaginal, skin and wound specimens
  • BD Universal Viral Transport Kit sustains viability for viruses, chlamydiae, mycoplasmas and ureaplasmas in a single formulation
  • Utilizes a phenol red pH indicator to ensure medium integrity at the time of specimen collection
  • Flat-bottomed conical tube stands on the benchtop which reduces the risk of biohazardous spills
  • Capture-cap on 3 mL vial eliminates the need for forceps to remove the swab and reduces the risk of contamination
  • Scored swabs eliminate the need for scissors
