Self-sampling to protect our healthcare workers

Our swab+drop COVID-19 self-swab kit allows for the self-collection of nasal samples based on easy to follow online instructions.

The swab+drop self-swab kit has an entry on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods. We endeavour to work with pathology laboratories to make this product available to Australian patients referred for COVID-19 testing in the coming months.

How it Works

Once issued with a self-swab kit, patients are instructed to collect their own sample following animated step-by-step instructions on a dedicated website. The laboratory will analyse the sample and make the result available to the patient and their healthcare professional in as little as 24 hours.

Why choose swab+drop?

Suitable for anyone aged 2 years and above.
A how-to video and step-by-step ONLINE instructions help patients ensure they are taking their sample correctly.
The swab has been especially designed for self-collection. It comes with a child protector for little patients.
The swab is a ‘mid turbinate nasal swab’ rather than a traditional nasopharyngeal swab.
