How to Collect a Throat Swab Specimen


Here at Puritan, not only are we passionate about the extensive selection of single-use products we offer, but also in our ability to provide our customers and readers with valuable information.

As the warmer months approach, but the chill remains in the air, medical facilities around the country are faced with patients who present symptoms which could simply be allergies, or could potentially be something more serious like strep throat. The only way to know for sure is by using proper throat swab collection techniques. To help instruct and inform, we have prepared a step-by-step infographic seen below to serve as a reference for proper throat swab specimen collection using Puritan products. You can download our throat swab specimen infographic here.
