C143146The swab with its own culture broth reservoir, minimizing the risk of secondary contamination due to handling
The gamma-irradiated, triple-sleeved ICR Swab: A unique ‘all-in-one’ system carrying its own culture broth
The ideal swab for microbial monitoring of isolator and clean room surfaces – Requires opening only once for sampling
The ICR Swab is a unique system for environmental monitoring of dry surfaces, such as filling needles, equipment recesses, uneven surfaces and tubing in clean rooms and isolators. It is a qualitative presence/absence test for microbiological contamination. This ‘all-in-one’ ICR Swab System requires opening only once for sampling. All further steps, such as addition of broth, incubation and detection of turbidity, are performed within the closed system, thus minimizing the risk of potential contaminations due to handling.
Secure and reliable:
Our all-in-one swab: Needs opening only once for sampling, thus minimizing the risk of secondary contaminations due to handling
Triple-sleeve packaging: Enables safe transportation in clean rooms (ISO 5) and isolators
H2O2-impermeable inner packaging: Protects medium from VHP vapor during decontamination of isolator
Gamma-sterilization in the ICR Swab’s final packaging (25 to 35 kGy): Minimizes the risk of contamination
Pre-moistened swab tip: Leaves no growth-promoting residues on surface
Convenient: Easy handling steps to minimize risks
Room temperature stability: Storable at site of use
Integrated hanging-up device: Convenient to use in isolators
Suitable for monitoring of difficult to access surfaces such as filling needles, equipment recesses, tubing etc.
