nasopharyngeal flocked swabs utilize innovative nylon fiber technology under the condition of the electrostatic field. Vertical fixed fine flocking provides an excellent sample collection and release. For minimizing invasive bacteria, the plastic stick involves a breakpoint. Break it before screwing the cap. It is really easy to handle and convenient for collection.
How to Collect a Nasopharyngeal Swab for Testing
Choose HUACHENYANG’s professional CY-96000 nasopharyngeal swab with individual packaging. Wash your hands and wear sterile gloves before you grab the stick. Have the patient’s head backward nearly 70 degrees. Then the nasal swab would go down horizontally to the posterior nasopharynx.
Insert the tip into one of the nostrils slowly. Take care not to hurt the vulnerable nasal wall. Undoubtedly, it would be a little uncomfortable but not painful. Actually, the fine flocking tip would help to make it easier.
When reaching to the postal nasopharynx, rotate the stick 2-3 times to make the flocking tip absorb enough target sample.
Remove the swab out slowly and place it into the sterile VTM tube as soon as possible. Break the plastic handle according to the breakpoint before you screw the cap.
