The Bode SecurSwab devices are designed so that the protective tube can serve as a handle.  This allows for a more rigorous collection of stains and better sample collection. 

Since it does not have to be air dried before packaging, it reduces the potential to introduce contamination. Packaging of wet swabs can also lead to transfer of sample to the container, thus reducing the amount of DNA left on the swab for testing and possible degradation of the DNA. The Bode SecurSwab DUO-V swab system ranked number one for both small- and large-volume DNA recovery in the Swab Collection Study conducted by the National Forensic Science Technology Center and funded through the National Institute of Justice.1
