The EZ Reach™ Sponge allows sampling without directly handling the sponge. It makes it easier to reach into drains, pipes, around equipment. Biocide free cellulose sponge maintains organism viability. Improved handling increases efficiency & productivity. Long handle reduces risk of contamination.
The sponge is ready to use and is hydrated with 10 ml of neutralizing buffer that will neutralize several surface sanitizers including quaternary ammonium compounds, phenolics, iodine preps, chlorine preps, mercurials, formaldehyde, and glutaraldehyde. To use, put on clean gloves and remove the sponge from the bag. Wipe the surface to be tested, return the sponge to the bag, close, and send to the lab for analysis.
Each carton is marked with an expiration date; no refrigeration is necessary prior to use.
