There are fewer medical tools more ubiquitous than sterile swabs. These disposable tools are used in thousands of applications — including specimen and cell collection for DNA testing, wound measurement, examination, gynecologic preparation, proctoscopic uses and more — and are essential for many medical, laboratory and pharmaceutical environments. Harmony Business Supplies has hundreds of sterile medical swabs in different sizes and materials for every need. Unlike other types of swabs, sterile swabs are wrapped for extra protection. Most of these swabs are made in the U.S. and include fast, free shipping from our store.

Our sterile swab sticks are made with top-quality materials like sterile cotton, rayon, polyester, foam and flocked by top brands like Puritan Medical Products. But not every material is ideal for every application. For your general purpose applications, we highly recommend our sterile cotton swab for microbiology and many more applications. Each cotton sterile swab stick is made from pharmaceutical-grade spun cotton fiber in the U.S., so you know you’re getting the best quality with these medical cotton swabs. Wooden stick swabs are the most common option, but we also have styles with plastic shafts that are a bit more flexible. You’ll also find swabs with foam tips (ideal for use with chemicals) and rayon tips (ideal for eliminating damaging elements that could interfere with specimens) in this huge selection.

For specialty applications, we’re happy to provide wound measurement swabs and calcium alginate swabs. The former is uniquely designed for wound measurement due to the flexible shaft, while the latter features biodegradable fibers which makes them ideal for specimen collection. Self-saturating swabs are a must for environments where you need extra convenience with pre-filled solutions. We also carry OB/GYN swabs, polyester tip swabs, swabsticks and flocked swabs in this huge assortment. If you’re unsure which style would be best-suited to your needs, don’t hesitate to contact us today.

What makes a sterile swab? All of Puritan's sterile swabs undergo either ethylene oxide gas sterilization or gamma irradiation sterilization before they are sent to customers.
  • Ethylene oxide sterilization: Used for delicate instruments and devices that can't tolerate heat or moisture. Treated with ethylene oxide gas, which disrupts the DNA of any microorganisms living on them and stops the organisms from reproducing.
  • Gamma rays: A form of electromagnetic radiation. Rays pass through plastics and kill bacteria by breaking the bonds of bacterial DNA. Gamma radiation is very penetrating, and is commonly used for sterilization of disposable medical equipment.
