Polyurethane Sponge Bags


Using the correct tool is one of three components that impacts the effectiveness of your Environmental Monitoring Program (EMP). While site selection and frequency analysis are important factors, without the best sample collection tool, can you ultimately trust the results?

Introducing a Smarter Environmental Surface Sampling Sponge
PolyProbe™ and PolySponge™, hydrated polyurethane environmental sponges.
These premium polyurethane sponge bags, pre-hydrated with Hi-Cap™ Neutralizing Broth, provide surface sampling solutions superior to standard collection methods. Medical-grade polyurethane sponges are non-toxic, super absorbent, and more resistant than traditional cellulose sponges, making them ideal for sampling of all surfaces and danger zones including rough surfaces.

Pre-Hydrated: Collection Broth
HiCap™ Neutralizing Broth outperforms traditional broths. It provides superior neutralization, is nonallergenic, has a two-year shelf life, and is compatible with 3M™ Petrifilm™.

Whirl-Pak® Hydrated PolyProbe®
The 8" (20.3cm) long bendable polypropylene handle allows maximum contact of the sponge with the sampling surface and also helps with the collection of hard-to-reach surfaces, around corners, and irregularly shaped areas. The innovative twist-off head holds the polyurethane sponge securely and is quick and easy to remove from the handle once sample collection is completed. See video below to see the user-friendly sample collection in action.
