4N6FLOQSwabs™, regular tip, peelpouch Thermo Scientific™

4N6FLOQSwabs, Regular Tip are comprised of a solid, molded plastic applicator shaft with a regular-sized tip that can vary in size and shape. The tip of the applicator is coated with short Nylon fibers that are arranged in a perpendicular fashion. This perpendicular arrangement results from a process called flocking, where the fibers are sprayed onto the tip of the swab while it is held in an electrostatic field. This process creates a highly absorbent, thin layer with an open structure.

Key Features:
• Certified free of DNase, RNase and amplifiable human DNA
• Rapid absorption capability and superior sample release
• Regular size tip for buccal cell collection
• Individually packaged in a convenient peel pouch format
• Break Point (from tip end): 20 mm

Unlike traditional fiber wound swabs, 4N6FLOQSwabs have no internal absorbent core to disperse and entrap the specimen—the sample stays close to the surface for faster and more efficient elution. The perpendicular Nylon fibers act like a soft brush that facilitates improved collection of cellular material. Capillary action between the fiber strands facilitates strong hydraulic uptake of liquid sample, and the sample stays close to the surface allowing easy elution.

4N6FLOQSwabs are manufactured by Copan, a market leader in the area of sample collection tools, and distributed globally by Thermo Fisher Scientific.

GenoTube Livestock Swabs Thermo Scientific™

The Applied Biosystems GenoTube Livestock Swab is easy to use and can be handled by even novice users. With its proprietary drying system, it rapidly reduces enzyme activity, preventing the breakdown of nucleic acids and proteins that are essential for many laboratory diagnostic procedures. Once dried, collected samples can be stored without refrigeration for simple and cost-effective transportation. In the lab, the samples can be easily reconstituted and used for numerous analyses.

Excellent sample quality—fast drying, not influenced by local humidity
Convenient versatility—capable of collecting different sample matrices, such as nasal swabs, oral fluids, blood, and fecal samples
Cost-effective—low transportation costs because refrigeration or rapid transport not required
Individually packaged—allows a unique identifier on both the swab cap and tube for clear identification and also reduces the potential for cross-contamination
Superior conservation—no degradation of DNA after long-term storage
Sample flexibility—sample can be used for antigen or antibody diagnostics (e.g., PCR, ELISA, etc.)

Genotyping applications
Collecting DNA samples for genotyping and sequencing using the GenoTube Livestock Swab is easy and rapid. After the swab containing the sample is placed back in the tube, the sample is dried, and the DNA in the sample is conserved. The tube can be transported and stored under normal conditions without refrigeration. DNA contained in the sample remains stable for years.

NOTE: this product has a minimum order quantity of 100 pieces.
