∑-Transwab®

Culture swabs liquid: ∑-Transwab®

Liquid culture swabs from MWE called ∑-Transwab® are liquid culture swabs for automated and conventional processing of swab specimens.

This new specimen collection device which is M40-A Compliant, incorporates a screw cap tube and Liquid Transport Medium. The specimen is collected using ∑-Swab®, an open celled, polyurethane foam-tipped swab which allows complete flow through of reagents and micro-organisms. The specimen is then placed into the tube of liquid medium for transportation to the laboratory.

The micro-organisms in the specimen are dispersed through the medium, producing a uniform suspension ready for use, either conventionally or on an automatic specimen processing platform, or direct with many rapid molecular tests currently available.

About us

Company details

A history of service

MWE was created in 1952 and has recently celebrated 60 years of trading - today we are acknowledged as the market leader in our field.

Stanley Broggio, the founder of MWE, started the company is his own garden shed with the production of wire swabs and general laboratory components. The company quickly went from strength to strength and moved to new premises during the 1960’s to accommodate the production of a growing range - which included the world’s first range of individually packed sterile swabs. In 1975 the ground breaking innovation of the Transwab® revolutionised the industry; an innovation which is still heralded as the industry standard across the globe.

Innovative solutions

MWE have continued to trade and grow successfully throughout the decades, despite economic downturn and a changing market. New product launches such as Virocult®, Sigma-Swab® (∑-Swab®), Polywipe™ and Rapid Test Strips™ have ensured a leading market share in the field of laboratory solutions and the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Today MWE produces in excess of 100 million medical devices per annum, and has an extensive network of global distributers working on their behalf. Their Transwab® range is recognised as the market leading product of choice and their portfolio of products and prestigious clients continues to grow.

All clinical Transwab® products comply with the CLSI standard M40-A (for the Quality Control of Microbiology Specimen Transport Devices).

Medical Wire's clinical products are CE-marked as medical devices (up to Class IIa) or in vitro medical devices, manufactured to ISO 13485:2003. Where appropriate, they are registered with the United States FDA. All of our clinical and non-clinical products are also manufactured to ISO 9001:2008.
