What are the advantages of flocking swabs?
The flocking swab is made of nylon fiber flocking technology, and the front end is coated with nylon short fibers fixed in a vertical manner, so that there is no absorption hole in the entire collection area of the swab, and the sample will not be scattered and retained in the fibers, which is beneficial to Faster and more efficient elution.
To limit damage to the sample and improve the accuracy of detection, the swabs are made from completely inert components. This makes flocked swabs ideal for PCR work, as flocked swabs are biocompatible and ideal for PCR work.
Considerations when collecting with flocked sampling swabs:
1. Be careful not to touch the sampling head with hands and other items, so as not to contaminate the sampling head and affect the sampling results;
2. Within 30 minutes before sampling, be careful not to smoke, drink, or eat. Pay attention to this point, otherwise it will have a greater impact on the sampling results;
