4N6FLOQSwabs™ devices utilize proprietary flocked-swab technology to maximize DNA collection and elution efficiency. The perpendicular Nylon® fibers act like a soft brush, which improves collection of cellular material. Unlike traditional fiber wound swabs, 4N6FLOQSwabs™ devices have no internal absorbent core to disperse and entrap the specimen—the sample stays close to the surface for faster and more efficient elution.

Key features

  • Designed for rapid absorption and superior sample release, enabling increased assay sensitivity and performance for both reference and casework samples
  • Pre-scored breaking point allows for easy breaking of the swab into tubes for processing
  • Certified free of DNase, RNase, and amplifiable human DNA; uses only selected non-inhibitory components
  • Available in a variety of ergonomic designs, configurations, and customizable collection kits
  • ETO-treated (Ethylene Oxide)

Designed specifically for crime scene sample collection:
The unique 4N6FLOQSwabs™ DNA Collection System Crime Scene product line is specifically designed for the collection of sweat, semen, blood stains, skin, and environmental trace evidence found at the crime scene.

  • Optimized for challenging samples—rapid absorption capability and superior sample release is especially valuable with limited or trace amounts of DNA
  • Prevents microbial contamination—swabs contain antimicrobial agents for improved sample integrity
  • Sample drying not needed—effective antimicrobial action allows the sample to be transferred into a tube or vial without drying and to maintain integrity even in more humid conditions
