Sterile plastic scoops are detectable with metal detection and x-ray equipment, preventing potential production contamination, quarantine and recalls. The scoops are molded with a proprietary FDA grade polystyrene resin evenly distributed throughout the entire scoop to ensure that fragments are detectable. The scoops are available in three convenient sizes, 2 oz., 4 oz. and 8 oz. The long handles on the 2 oz. and 4 oz. scoops increase the distance between the hand and sample to reduce contamination and exposure potential. Also, the 2 oz. and 4 oz. scoops remain upright when filled or empty allowing use as a weighing boat. The black color provides a contrasting background to better visualize material. Each individual scoop is individually packaged and sterilized in a polyethylene bag, ready for one time use and disposal.
