FecalSwab™ is intended to collect fecal specimens and preserve enteric pathogenic bacteria’s viability during transport to the testing laboratory. In the laboratory, FecalSwab™ samples are processed using standard clinical laboratory operating procedures for culture.
FecalSwab™ is a modified Cary-Blair medium specifically designed for the recovery, preservation and detection of enteric pathogens, available with two collection devices: a standard flocked swab and a specialized one with stopper for the collection of anal, perianal and feces.
In the laboratory, FecalSwab™ collected samples are compatible with Copan WASP® automated processing and suitable enteric bacteria culture.
FecalSwab™ is a convenient system for transporting fecal samples!
Fecalswab™ can be used by medical staff to transfer a small quantity of sample from the primary stool collection container, or to directly collect a rectal swab sample.
FecalSwab™ simplifies fecal sample collection, transport, and processing. Its shatterproof tubes are a compact and neat alternative to large, bulky transport containers.
FecalSwab™ is compliant with CLSI M40-A2 Quality Control
for Microbiological Transport System standards.
FecalSwab™ preserves collected specimens for 48h at room temperature or 72h at refrigerated temperature. In the case of C. difficile culture investigation, Copan FecalSwab™ preserves collected specimens up to 24h at room temperature
and 48h at refrigerated temperature.
The VI-PAK metallic foil and plastic film barrier block oxygen entry, preventing unwanted oxidation of the transport medium.
The combination of FecalSwab™ 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.”
