3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick is a ready-to-use environmental microbial sample collection device that is pre-hydrated with proprietary 3M™ Wide Spectrum Neutralizer. The 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick combines an innovative design and high-tech materials into a sampling device.
The 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick features a multilayered, non-woven composite material that is designed for pickup, release, and absorbency and maintains integrity when sampling rough areas. The 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick is hydrated with the proprietary 3M™ Wide Spectrum Neutralizer, which offers effective neutralizing capability for a variety of sanitizers used in the food and beverage industries, including quats, high acid cleaners, chlorine-based, hydrogen peroxide, and peroxyacetic acid-based sanitizers. 3M™ Wide Spectrum Neutralizer has been formulated using components accepted for use in the food industry and is free from known allergenic components, animal derived materials (ADM), polymerase chain reaction (PCR) inhibitors, and components derived from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). 3M™ Wide Spectrum Neutralizer is also designed to be compatible with 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plates and 3M™ Molecular Detection System and allows for a sample hold time of up to 96 hours at refrigerated temperatures. The 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick contains a metal additive for metal detectability*. The ergonomic stick conforms to multiple grip types, has a thumb-stop to promote aseptic sampling technique and features an easy-to-use 1-step twist detachment mechanism. 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick is the first and only sample collection device and neutralizing solution to be granted the AOAC® Performance Tested Methods, SM Certificate (#022104). The 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler comes in a 6” x 11” (15.24 cm x 27.94 cm) 3M™ Sample Bag with a 30 oz/0.89 L capacity to hold the device for safe, convenient transportation to the lab. The sample bag is double laminated for strength, puncture resistance, and durability when blending or transporting. Wire ties maintain a secure closure and a blue top and large white write-on area help identify the bag. The 3M™ Sample Bag and 3M™ Environmental Scrub Sampler Stick are terminally decontaminated through gamma irradiation. *The sampling stick was designed for metal detectability. All metal detection equipment and process conditions may vary which may result in varying sensitivity. 3M recommends the stick be tested in your product, process, and environment to determine the suitability and compatibility with the specific metal detection equipment in use.
