The swabs that Cambio sources are utilized by, amongst others, diagnostic test manufacturers who produce kits for molecular genetics. The shaft is made of mixed polypropylene making it soft and flexible.
Nasopharyngeal swabs have a snappable breakpoint for ease of storage/elution post-sampling.
Nasopharyngeal swabs are also be supplied in handy transport tubes which are CE-marked.
