What is 10 in 1 mixed sampling
10 in 1 mix collection means that after 10 people are sample separately, the samples are place in the same virus sampling tube. This mixed sampling mode is suitable for large-scale testing projects and has the advantages of efficient screening and resource saving.
Because a virus sampling tube only puts one person’s sample, the cost will be high, and the detection time is long, and it is not suitable for large-scale nucleic acid testing. In principle, such sampling is requir for high-risk areas and key populations mode.
When using the 10-in-1 mixed sampling test, the result is negative, which means that all 10 people are negative. On the contrary, once a positive or weak positive is found, follow up immediately,
a single-tube swab will be collect again for review,
and then it will be determined which of the 10 people is positive.
Therefore, the cost of 10 in 1 mix mining is relatively low. This also caused the mode to be 10 times faster than the previous mode of using a virus sampling tube for one person’s sample.
