Bright red color helps these scoops stand out and reduces the chance of them being accidentally left behind in a sample. Color can also serve as a code to avoid cross contamination and provides a contrasting background to better visualize light colored material. The smaller 2 oz and 4 oz sampling scoops have a long handle to better separate the hand and sample and are designed to remain upright when filled or empty allowing them to be used as weighing boats or to placed on a flat surface. Scoops are molded of durable polystyrene. Packed ready for one time use and disposal. 100 individually sterile wrapped per box.
