Description

The PUR-Blue™ Swab Sampler is manufactured with durable, biocide free, polyurethane foam that resists tearing and fraying even while sampling abrasive surfaces. The shaft on the swab is thicker than traditional swabs allowing the user to vigorously scrub a surface to disrupt and lift the biofilm to optimise collection of microorganisms. The large cap provides an ample grasping surface for the user to hold the PUR-Blue™ Swab Sampler during the sampler collection. The cap is designed with a second set of threads that allows for the attachment of the PUR-Blue cap to an extension pole for remote sample collection. PUR-Blue™ swabs samples are available dry or with pre-measured volumes of different types of collection broths. All units are gamma irradiated as t a dose range of 12-22kGy as the terminal manufacturing step.

PUR-Blue™ Swabs Samplers are available with different types and volumes of collection broths and are sold in units of 100 per case.
