The test procedure always starts with good preparation. Place the contents of the box on a clean, dry, flat surface eg a table.
Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water and dry.
Take the test device out of the foil pouch - tear the foil carefully at the notch
Carefully open the pack containing a swab, removing from the pack by the plastic handle - do not touch the absorbent tip (1).
Gently insert the swab about 4 to 5cm inside the nostril and rotate the swab 5 times inside the nose to collect mucus and cells. Using the same swab, repeat the procedure with the other nostril (2).
Extracting your sample from the swab
After collecting the sample, carefully unscrew the cap from the dropper bottle (there should only be a small amount of liquid in the bottom of the bottle) and insert the swab into this extraction solution. Vigorously rotate and twist the swab in the solution against the inner wall of the bottle at least 10 times to extract your sample from the swab. Now, screw the top back on to the bottle securely.
