Material Safety Data Sheet (PDF opens in new window)

Description: The product comes with a white plastic shaft swab with rayon bud. The swab is mounted in the blue bell-cap swab holder. In use, the shrouded Bell-Cap grips both the inside and outside of the transport tube to prevent accidental contact with potentially infectious parts of the swab or tube while ensuring containment of the specimen. The transport tube contains Transwab� medium without charcoal, based on Amies�€™ formulation. Both swab and transport tube are contained within an easy-to-open peel pouch. A theatre pack consists of 5 peel pouch sets packed within a sealed polythene bag so that the outside of each peel pouch is also kept sterile for handling with operating theatre areas. Each outer case contains 20 of the sets of 5 packed within an additional sealed strong polythene bag, so there are three layers of protective packaging to ensure the maintenance of sterility for handling.


Method of use: The specimen is collected from patient with the swab, using the bell-cap as a holder. The swab is inserted into the transport tube, and despatched to the laboratory after recording the patients details on the printed label.
