Flocked swabs for sample collection have fine bristles uniformly arranged around the applicator handle, assuring ultra-clean tips and reliable performance.
Unlike traditional wound fiber swabs, flocked swabs have no internal core to absorb and trap collected specimens. Flocked swabs have a velvet-like brush tip and provide superior collection and release characteristics. Choose from Puritan Purflock Ultra Flocked Swabs (high purity and cell release characteristics) or Puritan Hydraflock Flocked Swabs (specifically made for biological specimen collection).
The unique, bristled design of flocked swabs makes them ideal for a range of specimen collection applications, especially diagnostic testing, buccal cell collection, DNA testing, molecular assays, direct antigen testing and forensic evidence collection. Each one features fine bristles, which are uniformly arranged around the applicator handle to help ensure that the tips are ultra-clean and always reliable. Compared with traditional fiber swabs, flocked swabs by Puritan Medical Products don't have an internal core to trap and absorb collected specimens. Instead, they feature a velvet-like brush tip that ensures superior collection and release characteristics.
Harmony Lab & Safety Supplies offers two distinctive types of flocked specimen swabs: Puritan HydraFlock Swabs and PurFlock Ultra Swabs. HydraFlock swabs are engineered specifically for the collection and release of biological specimens and utilize a polyester tip that's designed to enhance rapid absorption and release of specimens. They offer a higher absorption capacity compared with nylon flocked swabs and have split-end fibers, which are often preferred in specimen collection swabs. We offer HydraFlock ultafine tip nasopharyngeal flocked swabs, as well as mini and large tip options to meet your particular needs. Sterile flocked swabs are also available.
PurFlock Ultra Swabs are known for their high purity and cell release characteristics, which makes them an excellent choice for rapid diagnostic testing (ideal for PCR, molecular assays, DFA testing, forensic applications, and direct antigen testing). Like HydraFlock swabs, these swabs have a high-tech polyester tip that makes working with specimens easier when high levels of absorbency aren't required. At Harmony Lab & Safety Supplies, you'll find PurFlock swabs in a range of unique sizes from ultrafine to large. They also come in either elongated or regular tip styles, which will help make your particular job simpler.
