The collection cup features an embossed scale (20ml graduations) and a
capacity of 100ml as well as a screw cap. The reverse side is eroded for
better labelling. Together with the tube set (item no. 01798) you have all the
items required for the so-called gargle test from the Wicovir study. This test
procedure involves the testing of participating school classes twice weekly.
This means: gargle tap water in the morning after getting up and fill the
two tubes with the liquid. In the school, the contents of one of the two
tubes is poured into a "pool" (collection cup). Afterwards, the combined
fluids from the group are tested. If there are any indications of a
Coronavirus infection, children and adolescents must present their second
tube for individual tests so that the infected pupil(s) can be filtered out -
the results are available on the same day.
