Transport Swabs – Standard & Mini-tip

(With Amies Transport Medium, Charcoal)

Laboratory transport swabs for sample collection, preservation and transport prior to culture for bacteria and fungi. We supply swabs containing Amies Transport Medium with Charcoal in either a Standard tip or Mini-tip 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

(Without Transport Medium)

We also supply PLAIN swabs without transport medium. Offering both Standard (rayon tip) and Mini-tip (cotton tip) with a plasticised stick and supplied in individual polypropylene tubes. The rayon/cotton tip is non-toxic to most micro-organisms and gives superior performance.

Finally, all of our swabs are available in convenient pack sizes: units of 10, 50 or in larger units of 100.
