Puritan Granted Chinese Patent for HydraFlock® Flocked Swabs


We’re happy to announce that Puritan Medical Products has recently been awarded a new Chinese patent for our high-performance HydraFlock® flocked swab.

Eleven International Flocked Swab Patents

With previous device and method patents in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, and Japan, this recognition brings our total number of international patents to eleven; with one additional patent pending in China (for our PurFlock Ultra® swab) and two flocked swab patents pending in Hong Kong. 

As recognition of our innovative medical devices and proprietary manufacturing methods continues to grow, we’re expanding into a greater number of international markets. Our newest Chinese patent speaks to Puritan’s ability to serve a diverse client base in locations across the globe.

The Chinese patent number for the HydraFlock swab is: ZL 201080049992.7

What Makes HydraFlock Special?

Our HydraFlock flocked swab is differentiated from other flocked swabs on the market by our proprietary flocking process which creates a specialized microstructure whose three dimensions have been shown to demonstrate superior absorption and elution.

Additionally, our HydraFlock flocked swabs have been shown to be the most efficient swab on the market. HydraFlock swabs, created for use with our bacterial transport systems, are designed to be used for the collection and transport of clinically significant bacteria.

HydraFlock swabs may be purchased individually, or as a part of our viral or bacterial transport systems.
