Monkeypox? Another Emerging Virus? A Reliable Test Device Will Tell
When Mpox is suspected, swabbing the patient’s lesion will collect the specimen needed for a confirmatory diagnosis. Many other infectious diseases can be identified by the familiar dry swab collection method with a synthetic tip swab.
- Spun polyester swabs have long been relied upon for specimen collection. This material collects and releases well. It is available in dry sterile wrap or dry transport tube. 25-806 1PD, 26-806 1PD BT.
- If specimen collection with transport medium is indicated, choose Puritan’s UniTranz-RT®. This transport media device protects the viral specimen for transport to the lab. See the package insert here, then consider Puritan’s UT-106, 1ml transport medium packed with the flock swab 25-3406-U.
- For a broad range of specimen collection situations, a dry flock swab is chosen. See Puritan’s 25-3606-U as an example. This swab, available in a range of sizes and configurations, collects an ample specimen and releases efficiently for reliable results. Also available in dry transport tube.
