TSC Hygiene Sponge for microbiological sampling

Saturday, 02 May, 2015 | Supplied by: Australasian Medical & Scientific Ltd



When screening the environment for pathogens such as Listeria or Salmonella, users often need to sample large surface areas. While most microbiological sampling is done with a traditional swab, the only way to really look at large areas is with a sponge swab.

The Hygiene Sponge from TSC comes with a reversible bag, which eliminates the need for using sterile gloves. Simply grip the sponge, pull the bag back over itself, take the sample, flip the bag back the right way and reseal it.

The sample is now ready for immediate testing or transport back to the lab. Increasing the convenience of taking a sponge swab will reduce contamination of samples and increase compliance with the user’s testing program.

The Hygiene Sponge is ready to use and pre-moistened with neutralising buffer, designed to counter the effects of residual amounts of sanitiser that may be left behind on surfaces and can affect recovery of organisms.
