Why risk your company reputation and suffer costly product recalls? Polystyrene plastic impregnated with stainless steel powder from top to bottom permits scoops and scoop fragments as small as 1.6mm3 to be detected with standard metal detection and X-ray equipment. These sterile scoops are made with FDA grade materials safe for food, drug and cosmetic contact. 60ml (2oz) and 125ml (4oz) scoops have a long handle that increases the distance between the hand and sample to reduce contamination and exposure potential, and a flat bottom that allows scoops to remain upright for use as weigh boats or to rest on a flat surface without spilling. Blue coloring conforms to industry recognized standards for metal detectable materials and both blue and black provide a contrasting color to most sampled products. Individually packaged, sterilized by gamma irradiation, lot stamped for accurate lot tracing, and shipped with a Certificate of Processing for Sterilization.
