Getting a culture or cytology sample from the equine guttural pouch is a real challenge. The conventional swabs do not have the proper angulation for entry into the guttural pouch.
This 22" culture swab is bent to about a 30 angle. After the sample is obtained, it can be removed with the outer sheath
still in the guttural pouch. Then medication can be infused if found necessary. The swab is covered by a methylcellulose
plug prior to entry and to avoid contamination. 5/pk. (not pictured)
