The M40 Transystem line is the latest generation of traditional bacteriology transport swabs. It was designed to provide the ultimate performance capability with the most diverse range of fastidious aerobic and anaerobic bacteria including Neisseria gonorrhoeae, sustaining viability during transit or storage at room temperature and refrigerator temperatures for up to 48 hours (at least 24 hours for Neisseria gonorrhoeae).
- High visibility clear plastic envelope with tamper evident seal
- Waterproof, moisture guarded packaging
- VI-PAK outer foil pack protects against ultra violet light damage
- Lot number, expiry date and description on every unit
M40 Transystem applicator swabs are manufactured using a unique bio-treatment process together with a careful selection of glue and binding agents that maximizes organism survival on the swab, and subsequent release into the test platform or onto the culture media.
VI-PAK packaging uses a high-tech composite of metallic foil and barrier plastic film proven to provide the ultimate product protection and shelf life stability. The outer foil packs block oxygen entry providing a barrier to oxidation of the transport medium and protects against any media degradation from direct sunlight. VI-PAK also extends the product shelf life by preventing dehydration of the liquid and agar medium before the end of the product's shelf life. All product packaging is made from 100% plastic film ensuring that no fiber sheds onto product, an important consideration for use in surgical rooms.
In order to ensure very low levels of nonviable bacteria, every lot of finished goods as well as raw materials is tested rigorously against a diverse selection of QC organisms and following the CLSI M40-A standard. All media contains less than two nonviable bacterial cells per 10 high power microscopic fields.
Packaging: 50 swabs per shelf pack.
