Q-Swab™ – Sample Collection Swab With Diluent


Environmental Sample Collection Device – Simple Swab, Snap & Squeeze

Q-Swab™ is a ready-to-use sample collection and delivery device for environmental surface sampling. Simply collect an environmental sample and snap the bulb at the top of the device to release 1 mL of media into the sample. The media neutralizes residual sanitizers and facilitates recovery of bacteria*. A variety of different medias are available depending on bacteria of concern. After activation, the sample is ready to be poured onto sample-ready media film or streaked onto plates for culturing.

*Only Letheen media neutralizes residual sanitizers.

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 sanitisers 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.
