Environmental Sampling Becomes More Critical as the COVID Pandemic Continues to Expand

Environmental sampling is becoming ever more critical as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to expand. 

Environmental testing plays a crucial role in many industries: pharmaceuticals, biologics, medical devices, food industry, aerospace, industrial, R&D facilities, laboratories, or anywhere people gather for work.

With environmental conditions becoming ever more stringent and with a greater awareness on the health effects of environmental contamination, surface testing is becoming even more important. Sampling is no longer focused on a few distinct areas such as clean and controlled environments.

It is extremely critical to use the swabs specifically designed for environmental sampling – made from low-particle-generating materials, cleaned and packaged in a cleanroom environment.  

These swabs have other important features:

• They are additionally processed to remove specific residues that may interfere with sampling

• Configured to have a transport tube, providing a reservoir for sample media preservation

• Validated for sterility according to AMMI guidelines

For more than 25 years, Texwipe has offered critical application swabs – including swabs that can be used for environmental sampling.

Our swab offering is supported by the most advanced testing and quality control standards in the industry.
