Nasopharyngeal swabs

Nasopharyngeal (NP) swabs are collection swabs used for cell and virus specimen collection, and are ideal for covid testing.

Manufacture of the swabs uses “spray on technology” whereby an electro-static charge perpendicularly attaches thousands of nylon microfibers onto each medical grade handle tip. These flocked swabs are ideal for collecting large quantities of cells and rapid sample elution. 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.

 Swabs are CE-marked
