These swabs are printed on Carbon M2 printers and have serial numbers so they are traceable, Via Fastcompany
This past spring, as medical facilities faced a shortage of nasopharyngeal swabs for COVID-19 testing, Carbon3D and Resolution Medical designed, manufactured, and launched a new swab featuring a carbon lattice tip. All of this took less than three weeks, thanks to 3D-printing techniques. The company is now producing up to a million swabs a week.
