“My research group and I developed in the last years innumerous studies in order to evaluate different collection and transport systems to ensure specimen integrity. We follow the protocols from the CLSI document M40-A and we compared the viability of different bacterial species after being held in different brands of swabs, different temperatures and different time points. In the end, only Copan Traditional Transystem Swabs were able to comply with all criteria proposed by CLSI for each organism’s survival, at all holding temperatures and time points.”

Vi-Pak Barrier Outer Foil and Barrier Plastic Inner Pack Provide the Ultimate Product Protection and Maximum Shelf Life

Packaging combination creates a closed system to achieve optimum performance of medium over its shelf life.

High Visibility Clear Plastic Envelope with Tamper Evident Seal that Changes Color when Opened

Clear package ensures that the correct product is selected for the appropriate investigation and its seal immediately changes color from clear to white as soon as pack is peeled open. The tamper evident seal provides visual guarantee of first time use, product sterility and integrity.

Lot number, Expiry Date and Description on Every Unit

Clearly printed on the outside of every swab pack and on the label of every transport tube. Enables correct inventory rotation and product use within prescribed dating. Allows 100% traceability of swab products.

Nitrogen Flushed Barrier Outer and Inner Pack

During product assembly, atmospheric air is vacuumed out of the individual plastic pouch and Vi-Pak foil pack is flushed with nitrogen creating ideal low Eh conditions.

Totally Waterproof – Moisture Guarded Packaging

Eliminates risk of accidental contamination of sterile pack contents by penetration of water condensation or contact between outside of the swab pack and moist or wet surfaces.

Stabilized Media Integrity

The metallic foil of the Vi-Pak barrier outer pack and the high-tech composite plastic film of the swab pouch slow down penetration of atmospheric oxygen preventing media oxidation and stop dehydration of liquid or agar gel medium before end of product shelf life.

No Free Radicals or Superoxide

Vi-Pak Outer Foil Pack protects against ultra violet light damage.

No Shedding Paper Fibers on the Inner Package

100% plastic film sheds no fiber, important when product is used in surgical rooms. Single plastic material easier to recycle.

Stringent QC of Raw Materials and Finished Product Guarantees Performance and Very Low Level of Nonviable Bacteria

Each lot is stringently tested against a diverse selection of QC organisms and following the CLSI M40-A standard. All media contains less than 2 nonviable bacterial cells per 10 high power microscopic fields.
