Coronavirus Test: A Swab into the Nasal Cavity


Call for Price / Licensing Agreement





The nasopharyngeal swab test, which is being used in hospitals and drive-through testing sites across the country, is done by inserting a long plastic stick deep into a person’s nasal cavity and spinning it for a few seconds to absorb a good amount of secretions. The sample is then refrigerated and sent to a lab.
