NP & OP Swabs

Nasopharyngeal swabs and their ability to collect mucus and saliva and release them into the transport medium for diagnostic testing are of paramount importance in the detection of bacterial and viral infection. US FDA and CDC recommends polyurethane swabs for diagnostic testing. Foamtec’s Nasopharyngeal and Oropharyngeal swabs utilize Foamtec developed polyurethane foam technology that provides an exceptional surface area to capture a maximum quantity of target fluids, while not bonding to those fluids providing high subject recovery. Foamtec’s proprietary swab cleaning processes and validated sterility ensure no background from RNAse and other contaminants for accurate test results. While delivering precise results, comfort in Nasopharyngeal swabbing is achieved with long, slender, flexible handles keeping patient discomfort to a minimum while reaching remote areas of the nasal septum and oral cavities. The handles utilized in Foamtec’s swabs are robust to allow for quick, maximum capture of mucus and saliva and release with low patient discomfort.
