    Designed specifically for microbial surface sampling, the 3M™ Hydrated-Sponge is biocide-free and pre-hydrated with Neutralizing Buffer to provide easy sample collection and maintain organism viability.

    Better testing begins with better samples — and better samples are obtained when you use the best collection tools. Made from biocide-free cellulose sponge 3M™ Hydrated Sponges do not interfere with microorganism viability within 48 hours of refrigeration for Salmonella and E. coli and 72 hours for Listeria. The pre-hydrated sponges come with a double laminated bag and gloves for ready-to-use convenience and consistent, reliable results every time. Both the sample bag and sponge are decontaminated through gamma irradiation to maintain organism viability and long shelf life. The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach is the most widely accepted food safety management protocol worldwide. Sample collection products from 3M are a crucial part of this approach to identify potential food-borne hazards and pinpoint where they reside. Portability, stable enrichment media, and easy-to-handle swabs and sponges are designed to test for a wide variety of potential hazards and deliver exceptionally accurate results. They are engineered to safely gather, hold, and secure contents from the collection site to the lab without leaking or compromising the sample. Buffered Peptone Water Broth is used as a diluent or for non selective enrichment of microorganisms such as Salmonella species or E. coli from foods and environmental samples prior to selective enrichment and isolation. Microorganisms that may be present in a food product can be sub-lethally injured by food processing techniques and may not be recovered by direct selection techniques. Buffered Peptone Water Broth promotes the recovery of those microorganisms that may be injured.
