Selective enrichment broth and swab from MWE

Recently, Nadine Dorries, Minister of State for Mental Health, Suicide Prevention and Patient Safety, reinforced the importance of following the RCOG guidelines on the prevention of, and treatment for, group B Streptococcus (GBS).

The RCOG recommendation states that a gold-standard Enriched Culture Medium swab test should be used as it is proven that, without using a selective enrichment broth, up to 50% of women who are GBS-positive have false-negative culture results.

Prevention of early-onset GBS infections would benefit from improved detection methods by optimising specimen collection and processing procedures. MWE developed Sigma GBS, a selective enrichment broth, complete with swab, designed for isolation of GBS from pregnant women, to tackle the issue of false negatives, offering patients accurate results, saving lives and
improving outcomes.
