Product Discontinuation: BD CultureSwab™ Liquid Amies Double Swab
Replacements: eSwab™ or Cepheid Collection Device
The eSwab™ (Copan Diagnostics) collection device—utilized by Cleveland Clinic for 8+ years—will now be the primary swab for bacteriology.
No change to the swabbing collection process is needed when using an eSwab™.
Although typically tissue or fluid is a superior quality sample for bacteriology, collecting a swab is often more feasible. The eSwab™ uses a patented flocked swab, which enables the elution of the primary sample into 1 mL of liquid contained within the collection tube. The bacteriology laboratory then uses this liquid for testing.
