Flocked Sampling Swab used for cell & virus specimen collection and it has been designed for Nasopharyngeal clinical diagnostics. The single use sampling swab utilizes state of the art "spray on technology"that the flocking process by means of an electro-static charge perpendicularly attaches millions of nylon microfibers on the medical grade handle tip.
A Flocked Sampling Swab is a type of medical swab that is designed for sample collection. It is made of a shaft, a handle, and a head that is flocked with synthetic fibers, the flocking technology allows for a better sample collection and release.
■ Ergonomic and anatomic design, perpendicular nylon fiber acts like a soft brush thus improves patient comfort and efficiency in cell specimen collection.
■ Improved sample collection, sprayed-on fibers statically charged and attached to the applicator tip in a uniform perpendicular manner and by means of strong capillary action cell specimens are rapidly absorbed.
■ Superior sample elution, with an open fiber structure it instantly dislodges the specimen cells into the liquid medium, unlike traditional wound swabs when the specimen is entrapped in the mattress core.
■ Increased assay sensitivity, flocked swabs are proven to elute >95% of the original sample rapidly thus easily resulting in improved assay sensitivity.
■ Quantitative volume transfer, measurable and consistent uptake and transfer from patient to the test tube has no internal mattress core to disperse and entrap the precious sample like traditional fiber wound swabs.
Flocked Sampling Swabs are widely used for oral sample collection, but can also be used for other purposes such as nasal, vaginal, and rectal sampling. They are often used in healthcare environments such as clinics, hospitals, and research laboratories.
1. COVID-19 testing: Sampling flocked swab has been crucial in collecting samples for COVID-19 diagnostic tests.
2. Bacterial and viral culture testing: Nasopharyngeal nylon flocked swab is used in laboratories to collect samples for bacterial and viral culture testing to identify the presence of pathogens.
3. Genetic analysis: Flocked swabs for sample collection are used in testing for genetics research, including DNA sequencing and genotyping.
4. Other medical uses: Flocked polyester swab can be used for a variety of medical procedures, including wound care, collection of skin and mucous membrane samples, and collecting samples for clinical microbiology testing.
The flocked sampling swab is ideal for collecting large amount of cells and rapid elution of the specimens that instantly releases the cells into the transport medium. It has been well recognized and adopted by the diagnostic test kit manufacturers who produce reagents in molecular genetics, forensics and clinical laboratories sectors.
The perpendicular nylon fibers act like a soft brush, allowing the improved collection and release of both cellular and liquid samples.
