Q-Swab – Health Care

Q-Swab™ is a ready-to-use sample collection and delivery device for environmental surface sampling. Simply collect an environmental sample and snap the bulb at the top of the device to release 1 mL of media into the sample. The media neutralizes residual sanitizers and facilitates recovery of bacteria*. A variety of different media options are available depending on the bacteria of concern. After activation, the sample is ready to be poured onto sample-ready media film or streaked onto plates for culturing. Q-Swab can be used either wet or dry to sample surfaces.
