3M™ Swab-Sampler – Testing environmental samples for pathogens

The swab samplers allow easy sampling, the tubes have a large headspace for receiving the sample and for vigorous mixing to release the organisms from the swab. This samplers are decontaminated by gamma radiation to ensure a long shelf life. The Swab Samplers are certified according to the quality assurance standard ISO 9001:2008. HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) is the most widely accepted food safety quality management protocol in the world.

Portability, stable enrichment media and easy to use swabs and sponges are designed to test for a wide range of potential hazards and deliver exceptionally accurate results. They are designed so that samples can be safely transported from the point of collection to the laboratory without leakage or sample degradation. The sampling tubes come in various ready to use compositions: buffered peptone water (10 mL RS96010BPW), Letheen broth (1 mL RS9601LET; 4 mL RS9604LET; 10 mL RS96010LET), neutralization buffer (4 mL RS9604NB; 10 mL RS96010NB), D/E neutralization broth (10 mL RS96010DE).
