eSwab® – Copan’s Liquid Amies Elution Swab – collection and transport system is our multipurpose media intended for the collection and transport of clinical specimens containing aerobes, anaerobes, fastidious bacteria, viruses and Chlamydia.
The technical characteristics and unique formula make eSwab® an extremely versatile device that can improve downstream assays’ efficiency (as gram stains, traditional culture, and molecular assays), optimize your laboratory workflow, and reduce costs.
Not only eSwab®- collected samples are compatible with WASP®-automated processing: eSwab® is the product that has opened the door to the concept of Liquid Based Microbiology, the first step into the Full microbiology Lab Automation.
eSwab® allows for multipurpose testing, traditional and automated bacterial culture, Gram stain, NAAT, and rapid antigen assays.
Ensure a quick, capillarity-driven sample uptake and a
superior elution of the biological specimen, expanding
downstream diagnostic testing capabilities.
eSwab® is compliant with CLSI M40-A2 Quality Control
for Microbiological Transport System standards.
eSwab® is compatible with a broad range of downstream testing applications, including molecular assays. Thanks to its liquid formulation, it could be used to run multiple tests from a single specimen, reducing multiple sampling and stocking costs.
eSwab® is available in different tube sizes and medium
fill volumes, in combination with a swab or in bulk packs
to meet different laboratories needs.
eSwab® preserved the viability of all the organisms tested for 48 hours at both controlled room and refrigerated temperature, except for Neisseria gonorrhoeae cultures which should be processed within 24 hours. eSwab® is also able to
preserve DNA, RNA and antigens of bacteria, viruses and Chlamydia for five days when stored at room temperature, 7 days if stored at 4°C and up to 6 months when stored at -20° C.
The combination of eSwab® with FLOQSwabs® expands your possibilities even further by ensuring an unmatched specimen collection in many anatomical collection sites. Discover why we call them “the perfect collection device.”
