But not every material is ideal for every application. For your general purpose applications, we highly recommend our sterile cotton swab for microbiology and many more applications. Each cotton sterile swab stick is made from pharmaceutical-grade spun cotton fiber in the U.S., so you know you're getting the best quality with these medical cotton swabs. Wooden stick swabs are the most common option, but we also have styles with plastic shafts that are a bit more flexible. You'll also find swabs with medical foam swabs (ideal for use with chemicals) and medical rayon swabs (ideal for eliminating damaging elements that could interfere with specimens) in this huge selection.For specialty applications, we're happy to provide wound measurement swabs and calcium alginate medical swabs. The former is uniquely designed for wound measurement due to the flexible shaft, while the latter features biodegradable fibers which makes them ideal for specimen collection. Self-saturating swabs are a must for environments where you need extra convenience with pre-filled solutions.
