INFOGRAPHIC: Flocked VS Spun Fiber Swabs

There are 2 main types of swabs when it comes to tip of the matter.

Most people have experience with spun fiber swabs (cotton swabspolyester swabs, rayon swabs). Most consumer product swabs for cosmetics and hygiene are spun cotton fiber swabs.

Flocked swabs are different.

Flocked swabs have ultra tiny bristles that are far better at picking up and releasing specimen and materials for collection and diagnostics.

Spun fiber swab’s traits make it far less effective for these types of uses as the specimen and material gets trapped in the spun fiber and often softer/porous core.

Sometimes picking the right swab for the job can be challenging.
