This Swab System is designed for sampling on surfaces in the production environment. It consists of a sterile swab in a tube with 10 ml sterile PBS buffer for sampling, transport, and subsequent quantitative detection of present microorganisms in combination with Compact Dry and Easy Plate culture medium plates.
Using the swab stick, a surface is sampled. This sample is homogenously mixed in the buffer medium by vigorously shaking the tube. Subsequently, 1ml of the liquid is transferred onto a culture plate using the outlet at the bottom of the tube. The inoculated culture plates are incubated according to their specification and evaluated by counting the number of specific colonies.
Delivery information: Kit components: Transport tube with outlet cap, swab stick attached to the cap, PBS buffer (10 ml).
