Venturi design: A carefully engineered neck constriction and moulded fins create a deliberate Venturi effect when the swab is introduced. The Venturi action works to immediately surround and seal in the swab tip, eliminating any bubbles, cracks and breaks that would normally occur in the agar, protecting bacteria from the harmful effects of atmospheric oxygen.



Active packaging: Each Transport Swab shelf pack is packaged in an barrier plastic/foil wrapper creating a closed system. Swabs are individually wrapped in a 5 layer composite plastic pouch which is totally waterproof, protecting the product from accidental contamination, evaporation and dehydration. Both inner and outer packs are nitrogen flushed to prevent oxygen penetration and subsequent media oxidation. These features keep the transport medium fresh for maximum bacterial recovery. Each batch of product tested for performance against a wide range of aerobic and anaerobic pathogens to ensure adequate recovery.
