Transport Swabs – Standard & Mini-tip
Amies Swabs – Clear& Charcoal Swabs
Vetlab supplies laboratory transport swabs for sample collection, preservation and transport prior to culture for bacteria and fungi. We supply both clear amies swabs and charcoal amies swabs in either a Standard tip or Mini-tip swab size. This transport medium is useful for preserving fastidious organisms (e.g. C.E.M. organism, Campylobacter spp.) in transit to the laboratory prior to culture. The charcoal additive is particularly useful in neutralising any toxic metabolic compounds produced by bacterial growth.
Plain Swabs – Standard & Mini-tip Swabs
(Without Transport Medium)
We also supply plain swabs without transport medium. Offering both Standard swabs (rayon tip) and Mini-tip swabs(cotton tip) with a plasticised stick and supplied in individual polypropylene tubes. The rayon/cotton tip is non-toxic to most microorganisms and gives superior performance. In addition, we also supply plating swabs, sterilized with wooden sticks for general laboratory applications.
Finally, all of our transport swabs are available in convenient pack sizes.
