Title
(EN) Dual swab fluid sample collection for split sample testing and fingerprint identification device
Abstract
(EN)

An apparatus for testing a fluid sample including a sample receiving member having an opening for receiving a fluid sample, wherein the sample receiving member comprises at least a first and second sample collection chambers, a sample retention member, in fluid communication with the first sample collection chamber, to retain a portion of the fluid sample, and at least one test strip, in fluid communication with the second collection chamber, to indicate the presence or absence of at least one analyte in the fluid sample, wherein the first collection chamber is not in fluid communication with the second collection chamber.
