Title:
Equivalence of self- and staff-collected nasal swabs for the detection of viral respiratory pathogens.
Authors:
Akmatov, Manas K; Gatzemeier, Anja; Schughart, Klaus; Pessler, Frank
Abstract:
The need for the timely collection of diagnostic biosamples during symptomatic episodes represents a major obstacle to large-scale studies on acute respiratory infection (ARI) epidemiology. This may be circumvented by having the participants collect their own nasal swabs. We compared self- and staff-collected swabs in terms of swabbing quality and detection of viral respiratory pathogens.
