It’s a new era in flock swab technology. HydraFlock provides superior collection and release of specimens. The unique microstructure of Hydra’s multi-length fibers are designed to enhance rapid absorption and quick release of biological specimens. It’s also great for nasopharyngeal and urethral cell collection, as well as specimen collection and forensic evidence collection. These swabs are also individually packaged and completely sterile.
The HydraFlock tip is the best feature of this swab. The tip of the swab is made with short nylon fibers that are arranged perpendicularly. Strong capillary hydraulics between the nylon strands draw up the maximum liquid sample of whatever it is you’re collecting. They also have no internal absorbent core to absorb the specimen, keeping the sample on the surface and making for extremely easy sample recovery. It comes wrapped in an individually wrapped paper/poly pouch. Made in the USA.
Flock & Dry Transport
Puritan’s dry transport system securely holds a swab in a round bottom tube made from virgin polypropylene resin, creating a safe and sterile environment to accommodate many different styles of collection devices. The injection-molded cap assures a precision fit for multiple handle styles eliminating any foreign adhesive which may interfere with the specimen and its sterility. These tubes include a distinctive label describing product identity, expiry date, as well as spots for patient identification and collection information. The labels also act as a tamper-resistant seal when attached to the cap so you can ensure the security and purity of your sample quickly. Ideal for specimen collection for testing and screening, it’s most commonly used in cell collection for DNA testing. It’s also used for Veterinary, Opthalmology, Pediatrics, and Oropharyngeal applications. The shelf life is 3 years, so these swabs will hold up superbly on the shelf.
FDA Approved Collection Devices & Swabs
More than any other step, ensuring you can get quality samples, whether those be DNA or otherwise, is the most critical step in the medical kitting process. Using only FDA approved products for your kits or for general use should be the norm and you should never deviate from it. The approval process is long and covers everything you can imagine, so you know if you’re getting an FDA approved product it’s going to do what it says nearly every single time. Rather than hoping you get good samples, you can rest assured that these swabs are going to pick up a great sample every single time. Good science requires the right tools to get proper results every time, and just being able to get good samples is where it all begins. So do yourself a favor, use our FDA approved collection devices.
