Deltalab’s Sterile Aluminium & Cotton Stuart Swabs are modified Stuart media transport swabs that allow the conservation and transportation of a large number of pathological microorganisms (e.g. neisseria gonorrhoeae, haemophilus influenzae).
The most unstable organisms will remain visible for up to 24 hours and others for several days. The media is reduced due to the presence of thioglycolate, which inhibits the enzymatic reactions of the bacteria.
The multiplication of the bacteria is prevented due to the lack of nitrogen in the media.
Swabs are sterilised by radiation. Peel-packed.
