With environmental conditions becoming ever more stringent and with a greater awareness on the health effects of environmental contamination, surface testing is becoming even more important. Sampling is no longer focused on a few distinct areas such as clean and controlled environments. It is extremely critical to use the swabs specifically designed for environmental sampling – made from low-particle-generating materials, cleaned and packaged in a cleanroom environment.
These swabs have other important features:
• They are additionally processed to remove specific residues that may interfere with sampling
• Configured to have a transport tube, providing a reservoir for sample media preservation
• Validated for sterility according to AMMI guidelines
