What to buy Strep Throat Test Kit

How to use Mckesson Strep Test Kit?

  1. Hold the Reagent 1 bottle upright and add 4 full drops (approximately 240 μL) to an extraction test tube. Reagent 1 is red in color. Hold the Reagent 2 bottle upright and add 4 full drops (approximately 160 μL) to the tube. Reagent 2 is colorless. The addition of Reagent 2 to Reagent 1 changes the color of the solution from red to pale yellow. Tap the bottom of the tube gently to mix the liquid.
  2. Immediately add the throat swab into the tube of pale yellow solution. Rotate the swab vigorously 10 times in the tube. Leave the swab in the tube for 1 minute. Then press the swab against the side of the tube and squeeze the bottom of the tube while removing the swab so that most of the liquid stays in the tube. Discard the swab. See Step 2 in the illustration below.
  3. Remove the test dipstick from the sealed foil pouch and use it as soon as possible. Best results will be obtained if the test is performed immediately after opening the foil pouch.
  4. With arrows pointing down, place the test dipstick into the tube of solution and then start the timer. If the procedure is followed correctly, the liquid should be at or just below the maximum line (MAX) on the test dipstick. See Step 4 in the illustration below.
  5. Leave the dipstick in the tube and read the result at 5 minutes. The result is invalid after 10 minutes.
