We are delighted to be able to say that we partner with Copan who have announced that their FecalSwab™ is the first Cary-Blair collection and preservation device supplied with a certifcation that no detectable levels of nucleic acids of most common gastro-intestinal pathogens are found in the medium.
FecalSwab™ Cary-Blair Collection and Transport System
Convenient fecal swab and rectal swab collection system converts solid or semi-solid specimens into liquid form for enteric diagnostics.
FecalSwab™ is a convenient system for transporting fecal samples in small instrument-ready tubes saving space and making it easier to transport to the laboratory. The fecal swab simplifies and standardizes stool sample collection, transport and processing by converting solid or semi-solid specimens into liquid phase, in instrument ready tubes, to facilitate automated fecal sample processing.
After conducting the primary culture of FecalSwab™, the Flocked Swab and cap assembly can be transferred to COPAN Selenite Broth tubes for selective enrichment of Salmonella. The remaining sample can also be used for a molecular enteric diagnostics.
