It is said that Leo Gerstenzang, creator of the cotton swab, got the idea after watching his wife apply cotton wads on toothpicks to clean hard-to-reach areas. Today, swabs used in medical applications are one of the most important consumables used in disinfection, cleaning and the collection of samples.
At USL Medical, we supply medical swabs as part of our huge inventory of medical consumables. We have cotton swabs and swabs impregnated with alcohol used for disinfection. All these are made of 100% natural cotton with plastic or wooden stems, sterile for medical and laboratory use.
In particular, USL supplies large mouth swabs and long 20cm cotton tip swabs. These are particularly useful when collecting mouth and nasal swabs for testing. The coronavirus pandemic has made these cotton swabs incredibly important and USL Medical are a trusted supplier of them all over the country.
Other types of swabs such as alcohol swabs, culture liquid swabs and gauze swabs are also available for order on our site. Whatever type of swab you are looking for, you can rest assured of the quality of product we supply to you.
