    The 3M™ Hydrated-Sponge with 10 mL Buffered Peptone Water Broth and Gloves uses simplified packaging to minimize handling and preparation, and reduces waste.

    This biocide-free cellulose sponge is pre-hydrated with Buffered Peptone Water Broth dilutions for convenient sample collection. The biocide-free cellulose sponge does not interfere with microorganism viability within 48 hours of refrigeration for Salmonella and E. coli and 72 hours for Listeria. Two, universal-fit, polyethylene gloves are included for convenience, safety and to facilitate aseptic handling. The cellulose material is durable, absorbent and effectively holds and releases the sample to minimize excess dripping. The 18 oz. bag is double laminated for strength, puncture resistance, and durability when blending or transporting. Wire ties ensure a secure closure and a blue top and large white write-on area helps identify the bag. The writable area is ideal for documenting data, date, time of collection, and other information for accuracy, efficiency and easy identification. Both the sample bag and sponge are decontaminated through gamma irradiation to maintain organism viability and long shelf life. This product is made in the USA with globally sourced materials and is ISO 9001:2008 certified for quality assurance. It is intended for lab use only. The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach is the most widely accepted food safety management protocol worldwide. Sample collection products from 3M are a crucial part of this approach to identify potential food-borne hazards and pinpoint where they reside. Portability, stable enrichment media, and easy-to-handle swabs and sponges are designed to test for a wide variety of potential hazards and deliver exceptionally accurate results. They are engineered to safely gather, hold, and secure contents from the collection site to the lab without leaking or compromising the sample. Buffered Peptone Water Broth is used as a diluent or for non selective enrichment of microorganisms such as Salmonella species or E. coli from foods and environmental samples prior to selective enrichment and isolation. Microorganisms that may be present in a food product can be sub-lethally injured by food processing techniques and may not be recovered by direct selection techniques. Buffered Peptone Water Broth promotes the recovery of those microorganisms that may be injured.
