Instructions for use and information

You will receive a test set with a test tube. You can choose which body areas (vagina/penis, anus, mouth) you want to include in the STD test. Make sure that all used cotton swabs and/or the urine are finally placed in this same tube.

The chlamydia and chlamydia/gonorrhea combination test for women contains a Hologic Aptima kit with:

  • A test tube containing transport fluid
  • Three cotton swabs (for vagina, anus and mouth)
  • An application form
  • A blue shipping envelope with RidgidSafetyBag
  • A user manual for collection and transport

The chlamydia and chlamydia/gonorrhea combination test for men consists of a Hologic Aptima kit with:

  • A tube with a yellow sticker with a window, which is filled with transport fluid
  • A 30 mL urine collection tube
  • A pipette (for moving the urine)
  • Two cotton swabs (for anus and throat, if you decide to test these areas as well)
  • An application form
  • A blue shipping envelope with RidgidSafetyBag
  • A user manual for collection and transport

Collection instructions:

  • Pay attention! The following applies to men: if you want to use the cotton swabs: start with the cotton buds and end with the urine collection, so that the cotton swabs are already in the tube before adding the urine.
  • Vagina: place a cotton swab in the vagina and turn it around in the vagina. Then place the cotton swab in the test tube, without touching other surfaces, and break it off.
  • Penis: collect urine in the 30 mL tube and draw up a portion with the pipette. Put this in the tube with the yellow sticker halfway up the window.
  • Anus:Insert a cotton swab rectally and then insert the swab into the test tube, without touching other surfaces, and break it off.
  • Mouth: With a cotton swab, remove oral mucus from reaching the tonsils at the very back of the mouth and insert the swab into the test tube, without touching other surfaces, and break it off.
  • Women: close the test tube including the broken cotton swabs. Then place the tube in the RigidSafetyBag according to the instructions. Men: close the tube with the urine and (potentially) the cotton swabs in it and place it in the RigidSafetyBag according to the instructions.
  • Place the RigidSafetyBag in the blue return envelope.
  • IMPORTANT: ALSO PUT THE APPLICATION FORM IN THE BLUE RETURN ENVELOPE!
  • Send the package by post to the laboratory using the return envelope.
