Designed specifically for microbial surface sampling, 3M™ Sponge-Sticks allows sampling without directly handling the sponge, making it easier to reach into drains, pipes and around equipment.

Better testing begins with better samples — and better samples are obtained when you use the best collection tools. Made from biocide-free cellulose to maintain organism viability, 3M™ Sponge-Sticks are convenient and ready-to-use with consistent, reliable results every time. The 3M™ Sponge-Stick allows a worker to collect samples without touching the inside of the bag, helping to maintain sample integrity. 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. The primary use of Letheen Broth is to neutralize the bactericidal action of quaternary ammonium compounds, and for determining the phenol co-efficient of cationic surfactants per the recommendation by the Official Methods of Analysis of the Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC). Letheen Broth is also used in hygiene swabbing practices where neutralizing quaternary ammonium compounds are required.
