Take a sample
Remove the nasal swab from the packaging. Insert the cotton swab into one of the nostrils. Do this 2 - 4 cm in adults and 1 - 2 cm in children. Twist the swab 5 times against the mucous membranes in the nostril. Repeat this process in the other nostril.
Dissolve the sample
Open the extraction buffer with liquid and place the swab in the tube. Twist the swab 3-5 times for 10 seconds. At the same time, squeeze the tube. Continue to squeeze as you remove the swab to remove as much liquid as possible. Place the cap on the tube.
Testing dissolved sample
Place the test cassette on a flat surface. Gently squeeze the tube and apply 2 drops to the round marked area. Set a 10-minute timer.
