Best Forensic Product of 2014: Puritan’s Cap-Shure®


We’ve always taken pride in providing the forensic field with the highest quality devices and materials, and this year they’ve shown their appreciation by awarding Puritan’s Cap-Shure® Cotton Tipped Applicator one of Forensic Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Best Forensic Product of 2014!

A Gift Of Recognition and Appreciation

The esteemed award presented by Forensic Magazine, celebrates excellence in product design and performance for the crime scene tools and products category used in Forensic investigation and analysis.

The award holds a double value, as it was awarded not only for our product’s proven quality and advanced functionality, but for its popularity in the forensic community. As a winner of the Readers Choice Award, the Cap-Shure® Cotton Tipped Applicator was voted most popular by those who are most active in the forensics community.

Our Unique Design Stands Above The Rest

Based on feedback we have received, along with voter remarks, the Puritan Cap-Shure® Cotton Tipped Applicator was chosen as winner not only for its state-of-the-art design, but for its intuitive ease of use.

While competitors’ products serve a similar purpose, our product has proven to be the superior choice for specimen, DNA, and evidence collection. Its absorbent cotton tip is produced from high quality US Pharma grade cotton which we card and coil onsite in order to maintain consistency.

The forensic swab’s tip is securely bonded to a wood or plastic handle, and the contaminant-free aerated cap protects the tip from cross-contamination to ensure the quality of each specimen. Each applicator comes sterile and individually wrapped. The ventilated cap allows for normal air-drying and lays flat for easy transport.

Ease Of Use Means Reliable Results

Using the award-winning Cap-Shure® Cotton Tipped Applicator is extremely easy, making it ideal for collecting minute samples at crime scenes when efficiency is most crucial. To use, simply follow these three easy steps.

  1. Open the tip protector cap.

  2. Slide down the swab handle until swab tip is exposed.

  3. Swab the cotton tip on designated area, then slide the cap back over the swab and close cap.

As we celebrate this holiday season, we are not only thrilled to have been awarded with such honorable recognition, but also for the opportunity to provide the forensic and DNA industries with a product that helps them do their jobs.

Cap-Shure®: Best Forensic Product of 2014

Our Cap-Shure® line of applicators are uniquely crafted for the collection of fragile evidence such as blood, saliva, latent print residue, or other physiological fluids, ensuring the integrity of each sample.

As America’s largest forensic and crime scene supply distributors such as Sirchie, Evident, TriTech Forensics, and Harmony Business Supplies report increasing popularity of this, and other Puritan products, we look forward to future positive recognition, which both reflects and reinforces our commitment to producing only the highest quality products.
