We Are Mawi DNA Technologies

We are a United States based company developing unique biosample collection technologies enabling universal sample collection from any population segment including animals, that also allow samples to be transported and stored at room temperature. The innovative design of our iSWAB™ biosample collection products allow for release of cells captured from almost any swab into a proprietary buffer. iSWAB samples can be used for simple or complex applications in multiomics-based analysis.

We have overcome the problems of low recovery, high bacterial content, low quality DNA, and excessive resampling costs common to most current sample collection methods.

Customer Testimonials

“It’s super helpful to have a product like iSWAB Animal DNA Collection Kit because it selectively preserves vertebrate DNA above bacteria DNA.”

Dr. JJ Apodaca| Lead Scientist and Founder |Tangled Bank Conservation


“We use MAWI iSWAB Microbiome-EL because it allows us to COVID-19 test community partners who can test offsite and safely transport tests tubes to our facilities because of its non-hazardous, non-toxic buffer that immediately inactivates the virus upon contact with the collection swab. The MAWI customer service team is easy to work with, responsive, and accommodating; making ordering and delivery fast and simple.”
