eSwab Minitip Flocked Collection Kit
Starting December 22, 2014, RML will be implementing the use of the new collection swabs and limiting urine containers to one collection cup, in addition to monovettes and vacutainers. When possible, routine bacterial, fungal and mycobacterial cultures should be collected using Copan eSwabs. Sterile containers will remain acceptable for respiratory, tissue and body fluid specimens. E-swabs are flocked swabs in liquid Amies transport media designed for collection of specimens containing aerobes, anaerobes and fastidious bacteria. These swabs are able to pick up more material from the specimen source resulting in improved microbial recovery.
