    What is a flocked swab?

    FLOQSwabs® comprise of a solid molded plastic applicator shaft with a tip that can vary in size and shape. The tip of the applicator is coated with short Nylon® fibers that are arranged in a perpendicular fashion.

    What is the difference between a flocked swab and a traditional swab?

    FLOQSwabs® have no internal absorbent core to disperse and entrap the specimen, unlike traditional fiber wound swabs, which resemble a mattress or cushion.

    Why are flocked swabs better than traditional swabs?

    Because of the design, flocked swabs are better than traditional swabs because they absorb more sample due to capillarity and because the sample stays on the surface, it is eluted rapidly and on its entirety.

    Is the line of 4N6FLOQSwabs® DNase and RNase-Free?

    Yes. COPAN's 4N6FLOQSwabs® line is certified DNase, RNase-Free and is free of amplifiable human DNA.

    Do 4N6FLOQSwabs® inhibit PCR assays?

    No. Strict quality control measures and use of inhibitory-free components ensure that 4N6FLOQSwabs® are free of PCR inhibitors.

  • Rapid Elution

    4N6FLOQSwabs® immediately release sample into assay reagents, buffer solutions or solid absorbent substrates such as COPAN NUCLEIC-CARD™. Since there is no inner core to trap sample, recovery is dramatically improved as opposed to traditional fiber wound swabs.

    Stringent Quality Control

    COPAN's 4N6FLOQSwabs® line is certified DNase, RNase-Free and is free of amplifiable human DNA. Strict quality control measures and use of inhibitory-free components ensure that 4N6FLOQSwabs® are free of PCR inhibitors. All staff involved in the production of the DNA-Free line are profiled, and stringent internal quality controls are placed on the manufacturing process, raw materials and final product release.

    Compatible with Various DNA Extraction Methods and Direct Amplification

    4N6FLOQSwabs® have been validated for compatibility with numerous DNA extraction methods. Samples collected with 4N6FLOQSwabs® have also been tested for direct amplification, eliminating the need for extraction steps.

    Data Matrix Code Unique Identification

    Every 4N6FLOQSwabs® tube is identified with a data matrix code, assigning unique numeric number to each sample ensuring easy traceability and tracking.
