Flocked swabs feature perpendicular nylon fibers that optimize specimen collection and elution into transport media. Unlike traditional fiber swabs, flocked swabs have no internal absorbent core to disperse and entrap the specimen. The entire sample stays close to the surface for fast and complete elution. Capillary action between the fiber strands facilitates strong hydraulic uptake of liquid sample, and the sample stays close to the surface allowing easy elution. The swabs also feature a molded break point that allows you to safely and easily break off the swabstick when placed in a tube with a transport medium.
The nasopharyngeal swab should be carefully rubbed into the back of the nasopharynx with rotary movements several times for 5-10 seconds to collect enough sample.
