Swab Sample Collection

Swab Sample Transport

Plain swabs are CE-marked for IVD and transport swabs as Class IIa in accordance with Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC. 

Primary Sample Containment

Transport Tubes

The tubes are ideal for any sample transport and collection. They are IATA 95kPa compliant for the storage and transport of a wide range of solid or liquid specimens.


Secondary Packaging Solutions

SpeciSafe® Complete System


Pouch and Absorbent

Secondary Packaging for Swabs

These versatile SpeciSafe packs will fit standard Bijou containers but are also useful for transporting short swab tubes. 


They can be placed into the rigid SpeciSafe® secondary packaging system which includes bonded absorbent material and built-in separation of containers.

Secondary Packaging

Alternatively to ensure compliance faecal pots should be individually wrapped in absorbent  and then placed in a secondary pouch.

If the primary container is not 95kPa compliant, then the pouch must be pressure tested to this level and there are different gauges of pouch specific for Road Transport and Air Transport.

Using this format the outer packaging must be a rigid box.
