Submit swabs in sterile, sealed vials with several drops of saline added, to prevent desiccation. Bacterial transport media are not appropriate for PCR assays. If culture is desired, submit a separate swab in an acceptable bacterial transport media. Cotton, plastic, wood-handled, and Dacron and other synthetic swabs are all acceptable for PCR-based assays. Calcium alginate swabs should be avoided.
