swab, collection and transport system of microbiological samples
With the aim to increase effectiveness of the processes in the sanitary system, Deltalab has created the range δswab, with 4 types of swabs (Standard, Urethral, Nasopharyngeal and Minitip), 4 transport liquid media for bacteria and for virus (Amies, Cary Blair, Vicum and Virus) and 2 enrichment media (Tioglicolat and Selenite).
The new swabs, made of polystyrene and head of flocked polyester, guarantee the maximum absorption of the sample and elution into the liquid medium. This range of liquid transport media allows both manual and automatic streaking. The material and the design of δswab family, with a softer cover and conical-bottom tube that ease the agitation, provide greater comfort and convenience for the user. Moreover, it requires less handling and guarantee the maximum tightness, a fact that minimizes potential cross-contamination that may occur during the process.
Loops made of polystyrene, high robustness and adequate flexibility for comfortable and efficient use. Double use loops: at one of the ends there is the loop for microbiological streaking, and at the other end there is a fine tip specially designed for counting colonies. Available in 2 volumes: 1 and 10 uL. The green and blue colors are used to easily differenciate the 2 volumes at the laboratory, and for display during the counting of colonies. There are 3 presentations: individual pack, 10 and 20 units. All of them consist of a plastic packaging with a very easy opening for the microbiologists convenience. These loops are calibrated. Deltalab certifies the control of the dimensional accuracy of the diameter of the loop by means of specific gauge. They offer great ergonomics and gripping thanks to its hexagonal design section which provide ease of orientation during microbiological streaking or colony counting. In adittion, its hexagonal hollow shape allows the optimization of material (PS), thus being environmentallt respectful.
They are Sterile by radiation, and lot and expiry date are printed on product bag.
CRYOINSTANT: Porous beads for microbiological culture preservation
CryoInstant is a preservation system for storing microbiological culture, consisting on 2 ml cryovials containing 25 porous beads and cryopreservative-added broth. With this system you can: Get a perfect freezing storage system. Obtain up to 25 replicates from the original microorganism, to use them during many years. Ease bacteriological medium inoculation as each bread corresponds to a crop. Avoid defrosting all the content every time we need a bead. Avoid the growth of ice when recovering. Minimise the risk of cross contamination. Save space in freezers when storing. The cryovial is made of polypropylene, external thread, hardy to -190°C. It incorporates long skirted cap with silicone seal. The cryovials are presented in a rack for 100 units, made by carton and resistant to - 100°C.
To make the classification of samples easier, our cryovials are offered with caps and beads in five different colors.
Experience, innovation and quality work together once again to provide health and safety solutions to the process of sample collection, transport and in vitro analysis in clinical laboratories. Deltalab has launched the new urine container of 120 ml. for vacuum tube.
The advantages over traditional container are multiple and revolve around three main areas: safety, health and ease of use. As being a closed system, it prevents contamination of the sample and also contamination of the user and the work environment. It avoids spillage loss of sample needed for analysis, facilitates the process for the user (either technical or by the patient), and sanitizes the process, as It enables clean transfer of the urine test contained in the bottle directly to the vacuum tube.
The set is classified as EC IVD and it is designed for use with vacuum tubes. The innovation resides in the cap, which includes a cannula with a needle inside. Operation is simple: the needle pierces the tube and the sample is sucked by vacuum into the tube, which is ready for further analysis.
A single use product. Tubes have an attached cap for the chain reaction of the polymerase (PCR). These plugs are flat and pierceable, made of polypropylene with ultrathin walls, a factor that optimizes the exchange of temperature in the thermocycler (adaptable to most existing in the market: Ericomp, Twinblock, Perkin Elmer 9600, MJ Research 100/200 96V, etc.). They are available in natural and coloured version.
The material from which the tube is made allows maximum transparency for good visualization of the interior, for example of the sediments. The bottom of the tube, in conical way ensures a good collection of the sample, as resuspension after centrifugation.
The flat cap attached to the tube facilitates handling when covering the tube with the same hand that holds it. These caps are perfectly suited to the mouth of the tube, which ensures a complete seal, preventing micro evaporation during the reaction time.
Chemically inert tubes. Metal-free, RNAse and DNAse free, pyrogens free, etc. Certificate is included on each inner box and outer box.
Working temperatures of the tubes range from - 80 °C to 100 °C, in constant temperature.
