What is the difference between a flocked swab and a traditional swab?

The principle of flocking is to make use of the physical characteristics of the same-sex repulsion and the opposite-sex attracting electric charges, so that the fluff is negatively charged, and the object that needs to be flocked is placed under the condition of zero potential or grounding, and the fluff is attracted by the plant body by the different potential, showing the appearance of flocking. It is accelerated vertically to the surface of the object that needs to be flocked. Since the plant body is coated with adhesive, the fluff is vertically adhered to the plant body.


Inventory the difference between flocking swabs and traditional swabs


1. Sampling swabs are to directly contact our human organs! Therefore, compared with traditional swabs, the amount of samples collected and released by flocking swabs is 3 times higher, and it will not cause harm to the human body. Flocked sampling is more comfortable and easier to use.


2. Compared with traditional swabs, the collection speed of flocked swabs is faster, and the sample collection time is 3-5 seconds, which is fast and convenient to improve work efficiency. Only faster sample extraction can complete the collection and analysis more efficiently.
3. Compared with traditional swabs, flocked swabs release more samples





The collection and release volume of flocking swabs is much larger than that of traditional wound cotton swabs. Experimental studies have shown that the collection and release volume of flocking swabs can reach 95% of the samples, while cotton swabs are only about 20%.





Because most of the samples collected by the cotton swab are easily intercepted in the fiber matrix layer of the head when they are released, it is not easy to release or release a small amount. The flocked swab can completely capture the cell sample through the directional friction effect of the brush-like fiber layer, so the flocked swab is particularly beneficial for the collection of trace DNA.





Therefore, compared with traditional swabs, flocked swabs have a better effect on the collection and transportation of clinical microbial specimens. This is especially true for those specimens that cannot be submitted for inspection in time and that have been placed for too long.
