Validation of specimen self-collection vs. collection by health care worker for COVID-19 testing (Andra Blomkalns, Jonathan Altamirano, Prasanthi Govindarajan, Yvonne Maldonado)

Maldonado, Altamirano, Govindarajan and Blomkalns are investigating three swab techniques used during COVID-19 testing: a self-collected nasal swab performed with the aid of an instruction sheet; a health care worker-collected nasal swab; and a health care worker-collected oropharyngeal swab. Should self-collected nasal swabs prove as effective as those collected by health care workers, patients may be able to safely and effectively collect specimens outside of health care settings Stanford Office of Technology Licensing info@otlmail.stanford.edu. 650-723-0651
