Vaginal swab in Aptima Vaginal Swab Collection Kit
(Orange label)
Follow the instructions provided in the Aptima Vaginal
Swab Collection Kit. Remove the swab from the
packaging and insert the swab into the vagina about
two inches inside the opening. Gently rotate for 10 to
30 seconds, making sure that the swab touches the
wall of the vagina so that moisture is absorbed by the
swab. Withdraw the swab without touching the skin.
Immediately place the swab into the transport tube
so that the tip of the swab is visible below the tube
label. Carefully break the swab shaft at the score line
against the side of the tube and discard the top
portion of the swab shaft. Tightly screw the cap onto
the tube.
