Sponge Breakpoint Handle

Easy sampling from hard to reach areas.


The special sponge design allows the ability to access hard to reach areas without direct handling the sponge. The sponge can be easily separated from the handle after swabbing by breaking at the designated point. The bags suitable for homogenization and incubation allows the delivery of the sample to a laboratory in a form ready for further processing.

Various product configurations allows to choose ones with or without sampling tools as disposable gloves and sampling templates.

The choice of 3 different Hy Con media pre-moistening diluents enables a wide range of environmental and product sampling applications.


Sponges pre-moistened with BPW – Buffered Peptone Water

Sponges pre-moistened with NPB – Neutralizing Peptone Buffer

are widely used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and food industry. Dedicated for sampling on disinfected areas of production lines,  for detection of specific germs as Salmonella spp. or Listeria spp. and for quantitative analysis of total mesophilic microflora and indicator microorganisms like Enterobacteriaceae count.

Sponges pre-moistened with MRD – Maximum Recovery Diluent

MRD - Maximum Recovery Diluent also called Peptone Saline Solution is an isotonic and protective medium used for maximum recovery of microorganisms from environmental and food samples.
