Maybe many people only know that a swab is a test that is done to find out whether a person has been affected by the corona virus or not. Usually the swab test uses a cotton stick with a special design. However, did you know that a swab is a tool that can be used for environmental sampling a cleanroom too.
The swab tool in the form of a special cotton stick turned out to be not only useful for taking samples in human samples in detecting the presence of the corona virus but it could also be used to detect a cleanroom. Are the shape and form of the swab tool different from the one used to detect corona? The answer is that some are the same and some aren't and of course each one of them have different functions.
