Swabs, Specimen Collection, Ultrathin
Definition : Specimen-collection swabs that include a sterile wad suited for good specimen recovery (e.g, rayon, calcium alginate) firmly attached to one end of a very thin (typically 0.6 to 1.0 mm) reusable metallic (e.g., aluminum, nickel-silver alloy) shaft. Ultrathin specimen-collection applicators are mostly used for sample collection in ophthalmology, pediatrics, and for venereal disease screening in the urethra.
