How to do the self-sampling test?

  • You have to take your sample when you wake up, BEFORE EATING, DRINKING OR BRUSHING YOUR TEETH, on the day you wish to submit your test.
  • Open the box containing the different parts of the kit.  The different steps of the self-collection procedure are explained in pictures on the box.  You can also scan the QR code printed on the box to watch a video tutorial, or watch it above.
  • Then take your sample.
  • Follow each step carefully. Each step is essential to ensuring the quality of the test.
  • Do not lose the tab with the barcode number of your sample on it.  As a precaution, it is a good idea to take a photo of it. You will need it to get your result.
  • It is imperative that you return your tube on the same day you collect your sample!
