MawiDNA iSWAB Microbiome

Mawi DNA Technologies has extended its iSWAB technology into microbiome research. The iSWAB-Microbiome (MB) is a non-toxic stabilizing technology that enables inactivation of bacteria, fungi, spores, and viruses, allows ambient collection and transport of various biosamples, and maintains the status quo at the time of collection.

iSWAB, along with the Mawi portfolio of proprietary buffers for various analytes, is available in diaago’s large range of sample storage tubes for optimal lab workflow automation. Let us know what you need and we can provide a customizable solution!

iSWAB-MB provides a representative snapshot of the microbial community that remains unchanged from collection to processing of oral, gut/fecal, skin, vaginal, and soil samples. Purified microbial DNA or RNA isolated from collected samples are compatible with qPCR, microarray, and NGS for microbiome research in health, wellness, and forensics.

  • Non-toxic stabilization; no organic, hazardous solvent fixatives or detergents.
  • Microbial presentation maintained intact from time of collection for weeks at room temperature (real-time testing ongoing).
  • No bloom effect correction needed for microbiome data. Both aerobic and anaerobic bacterial communities stabilized from collection to processing.
  • Ambient temperature transport and storage with no cold chain involvement.
  • The stabilization buffer efficiently inactivates bacteria, fungi, spores, and viruses allowing safe transport of biological samples.
  • Purified bacterial DNA or RNA isolated from collected samples are compatible with qPCR, microarray and NGS based applications.
  • Scalable and customizable platform capable of stabilizing up to 20g of fecal or soil material in standard collection containers.

COVID-19 Testing Swab

The iSWAB-MB is an excellent resource for performing tests to identify exposure and subsequent infection of COVID-19 in a patient. With the ability to provide a clear picture of the sampled microbial community that remains unaltered from the point of sample collection, the iSWAB-MB provides superior accuracy when administering COVID-19 testing.

iSWAB-MB does not incorporate any form of solvents or detergents, making it an ideal choice for the detection of viral infection like that found in COVID-19 patients. If you are performing testing services for coronavirus, utilize the iSWAB-MB for an accurate and stable testing tool.
