  5. Will this test work if I do not have COVID-19 symptoms?

  6. Can I swab my throat/ear instead of my nose?
    Please do not swab your throat / ear. Please only swab your nose to collect sample and follow instructions on the package insert.
  7. I lost my swab, can I use a Q-tip instead of the swab?
    Please only use the swab that is provided with the test.
  8. How deep should I insert the swab into my nose?
    Insert the swab ½ to ¾ inches inside your nostril. With children, the maximum depth of insertion into the nostril may be less than ¾ of an inch, and you may need to have a second person hold the child’s head while swabbing. Note: A false-negative result may occur if the nasal swab specimen is not properly collected.
  9. Should I swab my left or right nostril?
    Please use the swab to collect specimen from both of your nostrils to ensure sufficient sample collection to generate an accurate result.
  10. For how long do I have to swab my nostril?
    Firmly rub the swab in a circular motion around the inside wall of the nostril 5 times. Take approximately 15 seconds to collect the specimen. Be sure to collect any nasal drainage that may be present onto the swab. Repeat
    this in the other nostril.
  11. After nasal specimen collection, how long do I need to swirl the nasal swab in the buffer tube?
    Place the swab into the buffer tube and swirl for 30 seconds. Rotate the swab 5 times while squeezing the tube. Remove the swab while squeezing the tube to extract as much liquid as possible. Attach the dropper tip firmly
    onto the tube. Mix thoroughly by swirling or flicking the bottom of the tube. Then gently squeeze the tube and dispense 4 drops of solution into the Sample Well.
