Increase productivity and efficiency while reducing lab costs by using Q-Swab for your environmental monitoring needs. Q-Swab comes with multiple 1ml buffer formulations for optimal recovery of bacteria. Simply swab an area, then snap and squeeze – the sample is now neutralized and ready for transport or plating. Next, either pour the solution onto 3M Petrifilm or streak onto an agar plate. With Q-Swab, there is no need for broth preparation.
