Puritan Diagnostic’s product line includes US and European patent pending PurFlock Ultra and HydraFlock swabs.

The flock swabs are a vital component of the clinical diagnostic line of products including Puritan Liquid Amies and Universal Transport Medium (UTM) collection and transport systems.

Puritan Medical Products Sales executive vice president Timothy Templet said in early 2012 Puritan Diagnostics will launch its awaited line of liquid media-filled transport tubes, available with swabs made in their Guilford, Maine manufacturing facility.

"It’s a natural progression to take the next step and provide the one last thing that we have not made: media-filled tubes for the transfer of micro organisms from the patient to the laboratory," Templet said.
