in a transport tube with ventilation membrane
Maximum purity for optimal safety in preanalytics
The new Forensic Swabs from Sarstedt are suited for the collection of both reference samples and evidence of DNA traces at crime scenes. Apart from Forensic Swabs with polystyrene stem, our range also includes a wooden stem option. The Forensic Swab L has an extended handle for the hygienic collection of reference samples. The Forensic Swab XL with extended stem is ideal for the collection of evidence in sexual assault cases.
The ventilation membrane in the tube base enables self-drying of the swab within the tube. Drying of the swab in the open, i.e. outside the tube, as in standard systems is unnecessary, thereby excluding the risk of mix-up and contamination.
Stringent purity conditions in the production process and a special EtO sterilisation method developed by Sarstedt to comply with the requirements of forensic analysis ensure the absence of DNA contamination.
- EtO sterilised
- Self-drying within the tube
- Identification code* for correct matching
- Individually wrapped, sterile, or with tamper-proof closure
* Global article ID number + serial number (SGTIN)/GS1 Germany. The code is printed on the label both in plain script and in a GS1 DataMatrix format on the tube and swab for a correct match (Art. Nos. 80.630 and 80.634 only).
