Brush against the inner wall of both nostrils 5 times each in a circular motion with a non-invasive nasal swab. Our nasal swab is soft, highly absorbent, and only needs to be inserted ½ – ¾ inches so you can test yourself comfortably.
Insert the swab with the sample into the bottom of the tube and stir it in the fluid 15 times. Squeeze the sides of the tube around the swab as you pull it out.
Put 3 drops of the mixed solution onto the sample port of the COVID-19 test card.
