BD flocked swabs

Contact Us

Our flocked swabs feature perpendicular nylon fibers that optimize specimen collection and elution into transport media. The swabs also feature a molded breakpoint that allows you to safely and easily break off the swabstick, and several breakpoint options are available for different tubes.

Features and Benefits
High liquid absorbency
High liquid absorbency
Strong capillary hydraulics between the nylon strands draw up maximum liquid sample.
Solid and semi-solid recovery
Solid and semi-solid recovery
The velvet brush-like texture of the flocked nylon helps dislodge, collect and transfer solid and semi-solid materials.
Rapid automatic elution
Rapid automatic elution
Liquid and solid specimens are held close to the surface between the nylon strands. When placed in liquid or onto solid media, they spontaneously drain.
Sample release
Sample release
The swabs do not entrap samples because they do not feature an internal matrix core like traditional fiber wound swabs that disperse and ensnare samples.
