Copan UriSponge™ comprises of a screw cap tube containing a plastic applicator stick with two cylindrical sponges. Compliant with CLSI-M40-A2 standards and 510K cleared, UriSponge™ opens up multiple testing possibilities and is compatible with manual or WASP®-automated streaking.
UriSponge™ redefines urine collection, offering unpaired handling easiness and downstream assay’s performance.
Preservatives are chemically incorporated inside the sponge and they are ready to use. Zero-risk of overgrowth or overkill during transport.
UriSponge™ maintains the microorganisms viability for traditional culture and preserves nucleic acids for molecular assays.
Preservatives are chemically bound to the sponge, and are activated on contact with urine. Simply urinate directly onto the sponge applicator or dip it into sample cup, close the container and send it to the lab for analysis.
UriSponge™ preserves microorganisms viability at refrigerated and room temperature for up to 48 hours.
