“We worked with a team at the National University of Singapore to develop and manufacture a product that addressed a critical testing need in Singapore. We are now tooled at sufficient volume to support needs around the world,” said Walter Tarca, Forefront Medical Technology’s president.

EZYSWAB’s patented design offers patients and caregivers the best of both worlds: the flexibility of biocompatible nylon for ease of nasopharyngeal insertion and a Safe Break Point feature facilitating quick transfer to a sample collection tube.

The swab’s flexibility combined with its Safe Break Point feature, also minimizes the risk of accidental breakage during the nasopharyngeal insertion procedure.

The swab tip’s unique design has been clinically-proven to be effective in collecting samples for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing in both clinical trials and laboratories. When compared with a rigid swab, EZYSWAB’s flexible design received higher patient comfort ratings.

Manufactured in Singapore, EZYSWAB™ is individually-packaged to maintain sterility and ease-of-use. Currently, average delivery time is 14 days and the product has a 3-year shelf life.
