How to use our at home test kit

Easy 3 Step Process

Do not eat, drink, smoke or clean your teeth for at least 30 minutes prior to collection.
Complete the information on the gold-coloured envelope for each person and don’t forget to label their sample collection card.

Please note: the steps outlined below are for our at home tests only. If you have ordered a legally admissible or immigration test you must have your samples collected by a medical professional.

Step 1

Peel open the swab packet and remove the swab without touching the round head. Only hold the swab by the plastic handle. Place the swab head inside the mouth and rub it firmly on the inside of the cheek and along the gum line. Do this for about 15-30 seconds on each side of the mouth.

Young children can be a little unsure, so try and make a game out of it, like pretending to clean their teeth!

Step 2

Lift the paper cover of the sample collection card to expose the pink collection area. Press the swab head firmly onto the inside of the circle (do not rub). Turn the swab over and repeat with the other side. The circle will turn from pink to white when the sample is transferred.

Dispose of the swab in the bin.

Step 3

Allow the sample collection card to dry. Do not touch any part of the card where the sample has been deposited.

Once dry, place the card inside the gold-coloured envelope for that person. Seal the envelope. Samples can remain at room temperature following collection.
