Wallach cervical brush, sterile
A sterile smear brush, liquid-based, type D is a type of medical sample collection tool used for collecting specimens for gynecological cytology, such as a Pap test. The brush is a long, thin, flexible plastic or metal wand with bristles at one end used to gently collect cells from the cervix or vagina. The collected cells are then transferred to a liquid-based medium, such as a preservative solution, for transportation to the laboratory for analysis. The use of a liquid-based medium allows for a more accurate and reliable analysis of the collected cells compared to traditional, smear-based methods. The "type D" designation refers to the type of bristles on the brush, which are designed for use in liquid-based cytology systems. The use of a sterile smear brush helps to reduce the risk of contamination of the collected sample.
