Self-sampling Kit to protect our healthcare workers

Ellume’s swab+drop COVID-19 Self-Swab Kit allows for the self-collection of nasal samples based on easy to follow, animated step-by-step online instructions.

The swab+drop Self-Swab Kit has an entry on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). We endeavor to work with pathology laboratories to make this product available to Australian patients referred for COVID-19 testing in the coming months.
