Whirl-Pak® Speci-Sponge® Swabs
Designed for environmental surface or animal carcass testing for foodborne pathogens.
The Whirl-Pak® Speci-Sponge® Swab has been designed to facilitate the swabbing of surfaces and equipment in the production area along with testing of animal carcasses. The system comprises of a special non-inhibitory dry sponge packed within a Whirl-Pak® Write-On Bag. Each Whirl-Pak® Write One bag features a white strip for documenting the sample identification and description.
To use the Whirl-Pak® Speci-Sponge® system, the sponge is hydrated with a small amount of sterile diluent. Once absorb, using sterile gloves, aseptically remove the sponge from the bag and swab the test surface. Once swabbing is complete, aseptically place the sponge back into the Whirl-Pak bag and seal to prevent contamination and leakage. The Whirl-Pak® Speci-Sponge® Systemis then returned to the laboratory for sample analysis. Both enumeration and pathogen detection methods can be conducted from the sample following the correct procedures.
Whirl-Pak® bags can be used for temperatures up to 82°C and may also be used at freezer temperatures, including liquid nitrogen.
Note: Capacity is measured in fluid ounces when the bag is closed, and tab is folded over three times. Dimensions of bag are approximate.
