Accuracy and consistency are both optimized by using 3M™ Quick Swabs. This ready-to-use environmental swab system can be used wet or dry and quickly delivers 1mL of sample onto a 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate.

Ease of Use in 4 simple Steps
For Wet Sampling – 1) Bend red snap valve to transfer all the broth into the tube. 2) Remove swab from tube and swab targeted area. Place swab back into tube and bring to the lab. 3) Shake or vortex tube vigorously for 10 seconds to release bacteria from swab. 4) Pour contents onto a 3M™ Petrifilm™ Plate.

For Dry Sampling – 1) Remove swab from tube and swab targeted area. Place swab back into tube and bring to the lab. 2) Bend red snap valve to transfer all the broth into the tube. 3) Shake or vortex tube vigorously for 10 seconds to release bacteria from swab. 4) Pour contents onto a Petrifilm Plate.

Increased Productivity and Reduced Costs
The 3M™ Quick Swab uses letheen broth to neutralize sanitizers and is one of the most efficient, cost effective, and economical methods for environmental swabbing available. It can decrease your overall cost per swab test by reducing labor and materials required to prepare, gather and plate the sample. There is no need to prepare neutralizing diluent or use a pipette to add the sample to the plate or test. This means increased labor productivity and plant efficiency which ultimately impacts and improves your facility’s bottom line.
