As the key UK distributor for Copan’s product range, we can offer a comprehensive range of swabs to suit many different applications. Swab types include a variety of sample collection and transport media including eSwab®, FLOQSwab®, eNat and UTM®. For competitive pricing and consistent stock, trust Don Whitley Scientific to provide the solution for your laboratory’s application.

The eSwab® collection is the gold standard liquid-based, multi-purpose collection and transport system that maintains the viability of aerobic, anaerobic and fastidious bacteria for up to 48 hours at room and refrigerator temperature. Combines a flocked swab and liquid amies solution in a compact and automation-compatible design.

The Universal Transport Medium (UTM®) system is specifically intended to collect, transport and preserve clinical specimens containing viral material and extends sample viability at ambient and refrigerated temperatures.

The eNAT® is a sample collection and transport system ideal for use with highly infectious agents as it contains a detergent and guanidine thiocyanate. It can inactivate bacterial and viral cells, including influenza A, COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus), Mycoplasma hominis, Neisseria gonorroeae and Chlamydiae trachomatis within 30 minutes whilst preserving the DNA/RNA molecular testing.

These are just some of the collection and transport devices available as part of the Copan LBM range. Head over to the Swab Shop now to see what solutions we can offer you today.
