Amies Agar Gel
Amies Agar GelPuritan Opti-Tranz swabs with clear gel amies from Harmony Business Supplies will protect and extend the viability of your cell samples during transit to the lab. Clear charcoal-free agar gel amies will inhibit toxic oxidation for your grain staining samples and preserve aerobic, anaerobic and fastidious bacteria. Choose the swab tip size to meet your specific needs. Puritan's Opti-Tranz sterile miniature rayon tip swabs with clear gel amies, for example, are often used for ear, nose, throat and male urethral sampling to minimize patient discomfort. Puritan's rayon-tip swabs are made from nontoxic pharma-grade fiber.
Choose Opti-Tranz swab systems with swabs and vials filled with clear gel (no charcoal) gel amies or filled with gel amies with charcoal. The swabs have flexible swab shafts. Puritan Opti-Tranz sterile gel amies with charcoal will neutralize the effect of fatty acids that can be toxic to some microorganisms. Puritan's swab systems with semi-solid gel amies are also ideal for staining, as well as for direct microscopic examination of clinical samples. In addition to single-swab systems, we also carry low-cost dual systems with two swabs included with each vial containing gel amies.
