MicroSwabPlus: The MicroSwabPlus consists of a lyophilized pellet of a single microorganism strain inside a pen-like device.This pen-like device contains a sterile swab and rehydration fluid to facilitate the transfer of the microorganisms directly to culture media. The pellet has no defined CFU assay but a minimum of 1000CFU/pellet to ensure proper growth.The MicroSwabPlus are only 2 passages removed from reference strain.


The MicroSwabPlus show several advantages, which make them a great source for ATCC® derivatives, if defined assay values are not required, but a minimum of 2 passages is mandatory.

  • Each lyophilized preparation is less than or equal to 2 passages from a reference culture.
  • The pen-like MicroSwabsPlus are easy to use.
  • They can be stored at 2-8°C.
  • MicroSwabPlus expire 12-24 month after production.
  • MicroSwabPlus are sold in economical units of two.
  • A certificate of analysis for your QM documentation is included.
