3M™ Swab-Sampler with 10 mL D/E Neutralising Broth is a convenient and quick collection device for environmental sampling and testing over small surface areas.
Sample collection is easy with the attached swab and the vial provides ample headspace for sample addition and vortexing to release organisms from the swab. This sampling is decontaminated through gamma irradiation for long shelf life. The 3M Swab-Sampler is made in the USA and is ISO 9001:2008⁶ certified for quality assurance. It is intended for lab use only. 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 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. D/E Neutralising Broth was developed by Dey and Engley is used in disinfectant testing where neutralization of the antiseptics and disinfectants is important for determining its bactericidal activity. It is effective for Neutralising a broad spectrum of disinfectants and preservative antimicrobial chemicals, such as ammonium compounds, phenolics, iodine, chlorine preparations, mercurials, formaldehyde, and glutaraldehyde. D/E Neutralising media will neutralize higher concentrations of residual antimicrobials than other standard Neutralising formulations, such as Letheen media, Thioglycollate media, and Neutralising Buffer.
