The 3M™ Hydrated-Sponge with 10 mL Buffered Peptone Water Broth uses
simplified packaging to minimize handling and preparation, and reduces waste.
This biocide-free cellulose sponge is pre-hydrated with Buffered Peptone
Water Broth diluent 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. The cellulose material is durable, absorbent
and effectively holds and releases the sample to minimize excess dripping. The
sponge also comes with a 5 x 9 inch 3M™ Sample Bag that will accommodate 30
oz/0.89 L capacity to hold the sponge for safe, convenient transportation to the
lab. The bag is double laminated to ensure 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 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.
