General description

ICR Swabs are designed for environmental monitoring of dry surfaces in cleanrooms and isolators. The principle of the test system is a qualitative presence/absence test for microbiological contamination on the tested surface. The ICR-Swab is an all in one sample system for swabbing the surface, rinsing and incubating the swab by opening the system only once. The ICR-Swab is based on a dual chamber system. One chamber contains the tube with the pre-moisturized swab, the second bulb chamber contains a soybean casein digest medium supplemented with polysorbate (Tween® 80, lecithin and pyruvate as neutralizers. Both chambers are connected by the hollow shaft of the swab which is closed prior to sampling. By snapping the upper bulb chamber this closure is opened. Afterwards the culture medium can be squeezed to the swab tip.

Application

ICR Swabs are used for environmental monitoring of dry surfaces e.g. filling needles, tubing or other difficult to access surfaces in cleanrooms and isolators.
