Mawi DNA Technologies NextSwab
Mawi DNA Technologies has launched NextSwab, a plastic swab for high-efficiency nasal sample collection. The company released this product in response to the COVID-19 swab shortage. The swab head has two channels, separated by a septum, that retain the collected nasal material. This can then be released into transport medium with a gentle shake. The swab is compatible with many sample transport tubes and does not require any preparation for specimen collection. It fully releases its contents into the sample transport medium.
