The product is really reliable for use on difficult surfaces; it is not expensive!

  • Application Area: Ready-to-use swab for food & beverage environments

"I have used this product for some months so far. In general, this ready-to-use swab reaches into corners and hard-to-reach areas for increased accuracy. I can affirm that this statement is reliable, and cheesemaking equipment and machinery are a problem. This system is reported to have a convenient design. Yes, results are satisfactory when speaking of easy use and sampling in difficult (hidden) areas. The description of the product also mentions that a tamper-evident band indicates if the swab has been previously used. In this ambit, I have noted that the band is not easy to be removed accidentally; consequently, safety and security are assured. Moreover, the resealable tube provides tight closure for sample transportation. In fact, I have sometimes tried to force tubes with the aim of testing sample transportation in difficult environments, particularly with reference to industrial plants. In addition, this system is not recommended for use in "dry" facilities. Also in this ambit, I have noted the use is not recommended unless surfaces are sufficiently moistened."

Each swab is in a close sealed tube and pre-moistened with a Neutralising solution, avoiding the need to moisten the swabs and reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The large swab head and shaped tip collect organisms from hard-to-reach areas efficiently. The tamper-evident band acts as a good safety indicator to show whether the swab has been used. Resealable tubes prevent one swab from contaminating other testing swabs making it ideal for use throughout the plant. The 3M™ Enviro Swab is not recommended for use in "dry" facilities where completely dry sampling is required. The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach is the most widely accepted food safety management protocol worldwide. Sample collection products from 3M are a crucial part of this approach to identify potential food-borne hazards and pinpoint where they reside. Portability, stable enrichment media, and easy-to-handle swabs and sponges are designed to test for a wide variety of potential hazards and deliver exceptionally accurate results. They are engineered to safely gather, hold, and secure contents from the collection site to the lab without leaking or compromising the sample.
