NOW Swab Test



NOW Swab Test

Flexible endoscopes are a challenge to clean, disinfect and sterilize. Modern machines such as AER’s are effective tools for rendering scopes safe for use on the next patient, but determining if the process was effective can be difficult, which is why we’ve created the new NOW! Swab Test. Our simple and rapid test (<12 hours) checks for Gram negative bacteria around the elevator mechanism using the swabbing method, helping to ensure the endoscope is safe to use on the next patient. Utilizing a unique enzyme detection method, the easy to read fluorometer checks for the Gram negative bacterial growth (<10 cfu) by reading telltale fluorescence in the recaptured sample. If the fluorometer reading is positive for Gram negative bacteria, reprocess the endoscope following manufacturer guidelines prior to use. The NOW! Swab Test is available as a standard item (NOW-1100; includes flocked swabs, sterile cuvettes, 5mL vial of sterile water, tweezers, sterile pipettes, gram negative test, and Ziploc bags), and a starter kit (NOW-1100SK; includes incubator and fluorometer).
