Insert the tube into the workstation found in the packaging. Remove the lid from the top of the extraction tube
Open the swab package where indicated. Pull the swab out by grasping the plastic end. Do not touch the absorbent swab tip.
Carefully insert the absorbent tip of the swab into your left nostril. Ensure that the entire swab tip is inside your nostril (~ 2-3 cm deep). Do not insert the swab further after you feel resistance. Roll the swab at least 5 times against the insides of your nostril. Ensure good contact between the swab and the insides of your nostril.
Remove the swab and insert it into the right nostril. Repeat step 5.
Remove the swab from your nostril and insert the absorbent tip of the swab into the extraction tube in the workstation.
Mix well by rolling the swab at least 6 times while pressing the head of the swab against the bottom and sides of the tube. Start the timer or stopwatch. Leave the swab in the tube for 1 minute.
Squeeze the tube several times from the outside to try to release as much solution from the swab as possible. Remove the swab and discard in a plastic bag
Push the tip provided in the kit into the tube and ensure it fits tightly. Add 4 drops of the solution into the sample well (S) of the cassette by gently squeezing the tube.
Start the timer or stopwatch and wait 15 minutes. It is important to read the result (and upload a picture if necessary) at 15 minutes.
Finalise the registration of your result following the instructions found at www.chronomics.com/register. Once your test is complete, collect all the kit components and swab sample in a plastic bag and discard it as general household waste.
