The  proper  specimen  collection  technique  is  very important  in  identifying  pathogens  from  DNA.   For women,  the  sequence  of  Pap  testing  in  relation  to other  cervical  or  vaginal  specimens  does  not  appear to  influence  Pap  test  results  or  their  interpretation. Therefore,  when  other  specimens  are  collected  for gynecological testing, the Pap test can be obtained last. Specimen Collection
Collecting samples for Vaginal Group B Strep (GBS) with OneSwab®
Obtaining specimens for the diagnosis of GBS infection from both the anorectum and the distal vagina increases the  sensitivity  by  a  considerable  percentage  (5%  to 25%)  over  vaginal  swabbing  alone.  Within  the  genital tract,  the  highest  isolation  rates  are  reported  from introitus and the lowest from the cervix. Pregnancy does not influence colonization.
Collecting samples with OneSwab®
Step    1.   Firmly, yet gently, sample the endocervical canal with the sterile swab rotating it 360° for 10 to 30 seconds to ensure adequate sampling. When sampling a crusted over
lesion, moisten the swab in sterile saline prior to taking the sample.

Step    2.  Remove the swab and place into the vial. Break the shaft at molded break point and insert into transport medium.
Step    3.   To prevent leakage, be sure the swab fits into the vial prior to capping. Tightly
cap the vial and label with a minimum of two patient identifiers such as name and date of birth. For packaging and shipping instructions, please refer to MDL’s catalog of services.
