ESwab™ as viable alternatives (FDA Cleared) for COVID-19 collection

ESwab™ combines a COPAN-invented flocked swab with 1mL of Liquid Amies in a plastic, screw cap tube. The innovative system elutes over 90% of patient specimen into the liquid medium. The FDA has recently stated that ESwab™ could be used to collect and transport patient samples for molecular RT-PCR SARS-CoV-2 assays in a manner that will stabilize the RNA without meaningful degradation.

Read the FDA’s full statement

Patented Liquid Based Collection and Transport System for Microbiology Swab Samples
ESwabTM is a collection and transport system which is FDA cleared for aerobic, anaerobic and fastidious bacteria, maintaining viability for up to 48 hours at room or refrigerator temperature (Neisseria gonorrhoeae survival at 24 hours per CLSI standard).

Features and Benefits:

  • Improved pathogen recovery for traditional bacteriology culture

  • Swab samples are easily processed on automated specimen processors, and automatic pipettors minimizing manual handling and maximizing investment in automation

  • Homogeneous sample for more consistent and precise Gram Stains

  • Validated for molecular and rapid antigen testing on an increasing number of manufacturers’ platforms

Current Demand Exceeds Supply. When you place an order, please state your daily testing volume needs. We will make every attempt to allocate available supply to meet your daily requirements.

In general CDC is now recommending collecting only the NP swab. Collection of oropharyngeal swabs (OP) is a lower priority and if collected should be combined in the same tube as the NP. Collection of only OP swab is acceptable if other swabs are not available.
