3m enviro swab flat 373 627 image

The 3M™ Enviro Swab is a pre-moistened swab, ready to use for collecting environmental samples on all types of food contact surfaces in the food industry.

Each swab is in a sealed tube and pre moistened with a neutralizing 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 while the neutralizing solution helps maximise microbial recovery. The tamper evident band acts as an 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. Designed to maximise microbial recovery from floor drains, walls and large machinary surfaces, the EnviroMax Plus sponge is the ideal tool for your environmental microbiological testing needs.
