The Puritan 800 R Rayon Tipped Applicator is a non-sterile applicator that has a miniature rayon tip with a aluminum handle. The tip of this applicator is an USP medical grade rayon fiber material. It's bonded to a flexible aluminum handle and perfect for medical environments for task's like specimen collection and general patient care. The 800 R rayon tipped applicator meets FDA GMP's, ISO 9001:2008, and ISO 134585:2003 standards (certificate of compliance available with each shipment upon request).
The rayon tip material is a synthetic spun fiber made from wood pulp. This soft and absorbent material is much like cotton and is an economical choice for applications that cotton swabs would not be suitable. It's widely used for specimen collection. While it is produced from natural material, the manufacturing process eliminates any components that may damage the specimen or interfere with transport and/or processing. Puritan Medical Products only purchases the finest-grade spun rayon fiber in bales and then cards it themselves to assure the quality of the material is up to their standards.
