Choosing a sampling sponge

When determining which sampling sponge to use, it’s essential to consider certain factors in your testing process.

Bacteria – Release of bacteria from the swab/sponge for the quantitative measure. Subsequent cultivation Cellulose and polyurethane sponges are proven to be equivalent for sampling environmental surfaces.

Biocide – Biocide-free cellulose sponge maintains viability for a wide range of organisms.

Listeria can be held for up to 72 hours of refrigeration.

Environment – Cellulose sponges are made from renewable biomass. Polyurethane sponges are made from petroleum byproducts through a reaction of polyols, diisocyanates, catalysts, and additives.

Strength –  cellulose sponges are tested to withstand scrubbing on multiple surfaces.

Consistency – Cellulose sponges, made with cellulose raw material are sorted during inspection to ensure consistency of chemical and mechanical properties from batch to batch.

Temperature – Lethean is stable at ambient storage temperature for up to 2 months.
Neutralizing buffer is stable at ambient storage temperature.
