The Puritan 25-3317-H HydraFlock® Ultra-Fine Tip Flocked Swab is a sterile applicator that has a ultra-fine hydraflock tip with a polystyrene handle. The tip of this applicator is a soft, smooth medical grade material called HydraFlock that is highly absorbent and provides superior collection and release of specimens. this material is bonded to a polystyrene handle that has a molded breakpoint and is perfect for many environments for task's like forensic and specimen collection, rapid diagnostic testing, and nasopharyngeal and urethral cell collection. The 25-3317-H HydraFlocked tip applicator is CE marked for medical use and meets FDA GMP's, ISO 9001:2008, and ISO 134585:2003 standards (certificate of sterility and/or conformance available with each shipment upon request).
The flock tip material refers to the process of applying short fibers to an adhesive-coated surface. This process turns the swab into a velvet-like brush by precisely placing the fibers around the tip of the handle. This flock material holds more specimen and then elutes it faster and more completely than regular fibers, which is important when dealing with sampling of small and elusive specimens. Puritan uses an exclusive proprietary multi-length fibers to create the HydraFlock and PurFlock lines.
