We are SwabTek
SwabTek’s novel test kits set a new standard for narcotics and explosives presumptive field-testing, with technology that is simple, safe, and effective.
SwabTek’s dry, paper-based tests provide a safe and simple solution to put field test kits back in the hands of frontline security professionals who have turned away from incumbent products due to concerns over safety and reliability. SwabTek’s test kits are intuitive to use and designed with the user in mind, replacing traditional testing kits with paper strips — eliminating the need for bulky or hazardous liquid reagent dropper bottles, breakable glass ampoules and pressurized spray cans.
Since SwabTek’s reagents are dry-powder and set on paper, users will never need to pour, mix or crush packets full of hazardous and carcinogenic liquid chemicals, eliminating safety risks from the testing process.
This dramatic improvement in user safety not only allows security professionals to be better equipped with the tools they need to do their job, but it also allows field testing where it has never been possible before: the workplace, classrooms and even in consumers’ homes.
The presumptive field-testing industry has lacked any real innovation for more than 30 years, with the biggest changes having been to testing packaging. As a result, law enforcement and security professionals have found themselves under-equipped, as these traditional field tests are not always reliable and require toxic liquid reagents for use, raising concerns over user safety.
Enter SwabTek. Our safe, easy-to-use presumptive tests are designed with the user in mind and to put field testing back in the hands of frontline security professionals. SwabTek’s dry, paper-based tests also make it possible to take presumptive testing to new spaces, such as classrooms and even consumers’ homes, where field testing hasn’t been possible before. Our mission is to help secure your environment through user-safe, highly accurate testing solutions.
