Increase productivity and efficiency while reducing lab costs by using Q-Swab for your environmental monitoring needs.

Price Guide: POA

Money and time are saved by eliminating the need for pipettes and broth preparation. Each of the four broths offered in Q-Swab are self-contained in a 1.0 mL reservoir by patented Snap-Valve™ technology. When the Snap-Valve™ is snapped, broth is released down the swab shaft, neutralising residual sanitizers and facilitating recovery of bacteria.

The sample is then ready to be poured onto dehydrated media or streaked onto agar plates for culturing. Q-Swab can be used either wet or dry to sample environmental surfaces. Simply swab, snap and squeeze and a sample is ready for transport to the laboratory.
