Collect – Stabilize – Concentrate – Transport –  Store:  All in a Single Tube

Mawi DNA Technologies has overcome the problems of low recovery, high bacterial content, sheared DNA, and excessive resampling costs common to most current non-invasive sample collection methods.  The innovative design of the iSWAB™ collection device allows the release of cells captured from any swab into a proprietary lysis and stabilizing buffer. iSWAB-DNA Datasheet
