Colorimetric SWYPEs

Chemical contamination on workplace surfaces can result in significant skin exposure. Colorimetric SWYPE™ indicators are a simple and sensitive technique to detect contaminants on work surfaces and skin.

Colorimetric Surface SWYPES for fast easy screening for at-risk areas
Colorimetric Skin SWYPES for fast easy indication of chemical exposure

  • Easy to use - Spray Cleaner/Developer Solution on a surface and wipe with a SWYPE™
  • Specifically formulated for particular compound groups
  • Provides a rapid, positive colour change if the contaminant is present
  • Sensitive to levels equal to or below personal exposure levels for comparable airborne exposure
  • Safe for use on skin or work surfaces
  • Surface SWYPE™ are ideal for leak checking of pump seals and hose connectors

The Cleaning/Developing Solution is necessary in order to increase the sampling efficiency of both the Surface and Skin SWYPE™ detection systems. When testing for contamination, the surface is lightly sprayed with the Cleaning/Developing Solution. The solution dissolves the contaminant prior to using the Surface or Skin SWYPE™. The SWYPE™ is designed to wick the solution into the pad, increasing the detection level, particularly on rough or porous surfaces.
