This 1.5 x 3 inch biocide-free cellulose sponge is mounted at one end of a stick and pre-hydrated with a Letheen Broth diluent for collecting samples.

The stick also helps access hard-to-reach areas and to collect the sample without directly handling the sponge, making it ideal for reaching into drains, pipes, and around equipment. The stick also features a thumb-stop to help avoid contact with the sponge.

Once placed inside the collection bag, the sponge snaps free from the handle to allow for easy handling and transportation. The pre-moistened sponge is durable and biocide-free and does not affect organism viability. Its cellulose material is absorbent and will effectively hold and release the sample without excess dripping.

The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach is the most widely accepted food safety management protocol worldwide. Sample collection products from Neogen® 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; it is used in hygiene swabbing practices where neutralizing quaternary ammonium compounds are required.
