Swab both nostrils using medium pressure. Insert the swab approximately 1/2″-3/4″ (no deeper) and make at least 5 circles, swabbing the inner sides of each nostril. Take approximately 15 seconds per nostril.


Immediately plunge the swab into the vial and slowly move it up and down for 10 seconds before leaving the swab to sit in the vial for 1 minute.


Place the test cassette on a flat level surface, remove the swab from the vial, squeezing out any excess liquid against the vial’s inner side, and pour all of the liquid content of the vial into the circular well on the test cassette.
