Title: APPARATUSES FOR STERILELY DELIVERING FLUID
Abstract:
Provided herein are apparatuses, systems, kits and methods for sterilely delivering fluid to an elongated swab. In particular, provided herein are apparatuses configured to sterilely deliver a desired fluid to a swab contained within a swab housing. Apparatuses for delivering fluid to an elongated swab contained within an elongated swab housing are provided. The apparatus comprises a hollow main body having therein a chamber containing a fluid, a hollow applicator body positioned beneath the hollow main body, the hollow applicator body having therein a puncturing element, and an open channel positioned beneath the hollow applicator body, wherein the open channel is configured to connect with an elongated swab housing containing an elongated swab. Puncturing of the chamber results in flow of the fluid through the interior of the hollow main body, through the hollow applicator body, and through the open channel and out the open channel.
