This study evaluated three types of swab transport systems for organism recovery. Swabs with transport media were further assessed for organism viability over 24  hours over a range of different storage temperatures. Test organisms consisted of aerobes, fastidious aerobes and anaerobes. Swabs were tested according to the standardised quantitative elution method published by the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI; M-40A). There were substantial differences in primary organism recovery… CONTINUE READING
