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

Better testing begins with better samples — and better samples are obtained when you use quality 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 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.
