How to use?

Remove the test device and swab from their two individual packagings

Tilt your head back. Gently insert the swab about 1 inch into one of your nostrils. Rub the swab against the wall of one of your nostrils at least 5 times in a large circular path. Repeat with your other nostril

The buffer solution vial cap is composed of two parts – the top half (in purple) and the entire cap. Remove the entire cap. Stir the swab into the buffer solution by twisting the swab back and forth 20 times. Slightly tilt the vial to ensure the swab tip is fully submerged in the solution

Close the entire vial cap tightly

Remove the top half of the vial cap in purple to expose the dropper tip

Hold the vial vertically. Squeeze and drip 3 drops of the solution into the oval opening of the test device (wait for the drop to be absorbed before dripping another drop)
