What is the Swab and Tube and the Tube Label?
The Swab and Tube refers to the nasal swab and the viral transport media container (tube). The Tube holds liquid viral transport media which preserves your nasal specimen as it travels to the laboratory. It is important that you do not spill the liquid out of the Tube.
The Tube Label refers to the blank label located on the Tube Label sheet. Please fill out the Label in block letters according to the instructions provided with First Name Last Name and Date of Birth.
