|Open the package||Collect the sample as required||After collecting the sample, place the swab in the sampling solution||Break the handle at the break point of the swab and leave the swab head in the tube||Tighten the cap and mark the sample information on the tube label|
1. Mark the sample information on the tube.
2. According to different sampling requirements, use a sampling swab to sample at the corresponding part, hold the handle to gently insert the sampling swab into the sampling site, gently rotate the sampling swab 3-5 times, and then slowly take it out.
3. Put the sample into the sampling tube, break the swab at the breaking point of the swab, and leave the swab head in the tube, then tighten the tube cap to complete the sampling.
4. Freshly collected clinical specimens should be transported to the laboratory within 48 hours at 4 ° C. Those that cannot be sent to the laboratory within 48 hours should be stored at -20 ° C or below.
5. The conventional sampling methods are as follows:
a) Nasal swab: Insert the head of the swab gently into the nasopalatine part of the nasal canal, stop for a while, and then slowly rotate it out. In the same way, swab the other nostril with another swab, immerse the head of the swab into the sampling solution, and discard the tail.
b) Pharyngeal swab: Use a swab to wipe the bilateral pharyngeal tonsils and posterior pharyngeal wall. Immerse the swab head in the sample solution and discard the tail.
c) Mouthwash: Gargle the mouth with 10ml normal saline, let the patient's head tilt back slightly, make an "Oh" sound, let the saline rotate in the pharynx, and collect the wash with an empty 50ml sterilized tube.
d) Nasal wash: The patient takes a sitting position, tilts her head slightly back, injects 50 ml of normal saline into one nostril with a pipette, and instructs the patient to simultaneously sound “K” to close the pharyngeal cavity. Then let the patient bow his head to let the saline flow out, collect the liquid with an empty 50 ml sterilized tube, and repeat this process to wash the other nostrils.
e) Nasopharyngeal extract: Tracheal and bronchial secretions are often collected using this method, and a mucus is drawn from the nasopharynx with a collector connected to a negative pressure pump. First insert the collector head into the nasal cavity, turn on the negative pressure, rotate the collector head and slowly push it out. Collect and draw the mucus, and rinse the collector three times with 5 ml of the sampling solution.
f) Autopsy tissue specimens: Collect autopsy tissue specimens if necessary to separate sample components. The specimen is autopsy tissue.
g) Samples of mycoplasma, chlamydia, ureaplasma: for the male, inserts the sterilized swab into the urethra about 2cm, rotated, and took the material at rest for several seconds , for the female, wipes out the cervical mucus and inserts the sterilized swab into the cervical tube for 1-2cm to take the material.
1. Samplers should be sent for testing as soon as possible after sampling, and immediately be transported at a low temperature of 4℃. The collected samples can be stored at 2-8℃ for a short period of 48 hours, long-term storage should be placed in low temperature conditions below -20℃, -70℃ or store at -196℃.
