Screen Employees and Students for COVID-19 Using a Cost-Saving Pooled Testing Method

Designed to streamline and ease the burden of COVID-19 testing, PodSwab™ consists of 6 mL UTM® Universal Transport Medium™ and 5 nasal FLOQSwab® flocked swabs allowing for up to five different individual samples in each tube.


By pooling samples, testers are able to significantly increase the number of individuals that can be tested at a lower cost. Pooling increases the number of individuals that can be tested using the same amount of resources and can detect both symptomatic and asymptomatic persons.

  1. Samples are collected from a group, or pod of people using one swab per person.
  2. The samples are then combined together into a single tube.
  3. If the pooled test is negative for COVID, then all people in the pod are considered negative.
  4. If a pooled test result is positive, then each person within the pod must be individually retested to determine who was positive.

About FLOQSwab® Flocked Collection Swabs

 

Invented by COPAN, FLOQSwab® flocked swabs are a special type of swab produced with an applicator tip that is spray-coated with short Nylon® fibers arranged perpendicularly. Unlike traditional swabs made with materials that can trap the specimen, flocked swabs use a thin absorbent layer of Nylon® fibers with no internal core, allowing greater sample uptake and release.
