Let's follow together to get to know the shenzhen swab manufacturer.
More than 1, pay attention to the shelf life of ordinary medical swabs using double paper.
The cotton swabs after high temperature and high pressure disinfection, in unopened state, shelf life is usually for two weeks.
Southern humid area, however, or spring plum rains season, because paper is easy to be affected with damp be affected with damp, so that the bacteria to infiltrate inside packing, therefore, the cotton swabs shelf life is likely to be only a week or so.
Production of medical cotton swabs and shenzhen using sealed packaging, longer shelf life than ordinary cotton swabs.
2 don't used for wound disinfection swab, family average household use at ordinary times the number of medical cotton swabs is not much, no conditions on the kaifeng also 24 hours after the rest of the cotton swabs for sterilization processing again.

So, to ensure the aseptic cotton swabs, is one of the important measures to prevent infection.
3, save swab important save medical cotton swabs, to ensure the packing sealing, and also note that swabs should be stored in the relative humidity is not more than eighty percent, no corrosive gas and indoor ventilated, avoid high temperature.
