General Information

Mantac Rectal Swab Collection System offers a convenient and efficient solution for stool collection, transport, and preservation of enteric pathogens. This system pairs flocked swabs with Cary-Blair medium, enabling simple, liquid-based sampling and transportation. Its compact and space-efficient design, coupled with its ability to support downstream applications such as bacterial culture, toxigenic and antigenic detection, NAAT, and enteric molecular assays for bacteria, viruses, and parasites, makes it a versatile choice for laboratories and healthcare facilities.

Our Kits Include:

Our Rectal Specimen Collection Swab is designed with a medical grade ABS handle + flocked tip. With a gentle push on the end of the swab after collection is complete, the swab tip can be dislodged in the cell preservation solution, avoiding fecal spills during the traditional process of breaking off the swab tip. The flocked swabs provide far superior sample collection and release than normal cotton wound swabs, and the paired Cary-blair transport medium is primarily used for sample collection of GI pathogens.
