SARS-CoV-2 Sample Collection


SARS-CoV-2 Sample Collection for Direct RT-PCR or RT-LAMP

iSWAB™-Microbiome-EL Devices for SARS-CoV-2 sample collection and extraction less sample processing

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, viral testing became the most effective tool to help bring outbreaks and surges under control. However, this comprehensive testing effort resulted in huge supply chain pressures, especially for lab consumables such as swabs and viral extraction reagents.

Our partner Mawi DNA Technologies developed a modified “Extraction-Less” version of the non-invasive iSWAB™ technology. The iSWAB™-Microbiome-EL is designed to eliminate the RNA extraction step in the molecular testing workflow, allowing laboratories to perform direct RT-PCR and RT-LAMP on individual and pooled samples, eliminating or reducing the possibility of human error during long extraction protocols and the cost of extraction reagents, while increasing testing throughput.

Additionally, the ambient temperature stabilization capacity of iSWAB™-MB-EL maintains the integrity of samples in cases of shipping delays/long shipping times or lab backlogs. This reduces the chances of false negatives and the need for patient re-sampling.

iSWAB-MB-EL SARS-CoV-2 Sample Collection Devices are available in racks of 50 or in bags of 500 tubes.

We also offer plastic swabs optimized for nasal sample collection.
