Nylon Flocked Swabs

Medico Flocked Swabs

Medico provides a variety of nylon flocked swab tip sizes and various shaped handles for specific applications. Medico sterile sample collection nylon flocked swabs for sample collection can be Individually-wrapped in dry transport tube or peel pouches.

Nylon Flocked Swabs for Sample Collection

Nylon Flocked Swabs Application:

  • Nasopharyngeal Oropharyngeal viruses collection
  • Microrheologics Microbiology
  • Industrial / Forensics
  • Bacteriology
  • Automation
  • Medical sample collection


Nylon Flocked Swabs Features:

  • Ergonomic and Anatomic Design 
    For improved patient comfort and efficiency in cell specimen collection.
  • 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 entrap in the mattress core.
  • Rapid Absorption (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.
  • Increased Assay Sensitivity
    Nylon Flocked Swabs are proven to elute >95% of the original sample rapidly thus easily resulting in improved assay sensitivity.
  • Simply Collect, Snap and Ship
    Peel open the pouch, collect the cell specimen and snap the applicator shaft into the Transport Medium or Cuvette-tube provided.
  • 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. In stark contrast, the entire sample stays close to the surface for fast and complete elution.
  • Perpendicular Nylon Fibers
    Act like a soft brush and allows improved collection of cell samples. Capillary action between the Nylon fiber strands facilitates strong hydraulic uptake of cell specimens. Cell stays close to the surface allowing easier elution.
  • Certified Free Of Inhibitors And Interference
    Collection swabs are certified DNase, RNase-Free and Human DNA-Free. They are also free of any PCR inhibitors. Certificate of analysis available for each lot of manufacture.
  • Highly Suited To Automation
    4N6 DNA swabs release only minute amounts of fiber during extraction procedures compared with traditional fiber wound swabs. This avoids any risk of blockage of pipeting tips and probes used by liquid handling robots.
