New liquid based swab collection system replaces the current blue Amies swabs

Pathlab is pleased to introduce the new liquid based ESwab collection and transport system. The ESwab features a flocked swab that collects more sample and then when placed into the transport tube, releases it into the modified Amies transport fluid.

This system maintains viability of aerobic, anaerobic and fastidious bacteria for up to 48 hours, (gonorrhoea up to 24 hours), at room and refrigerator temperatures.
