Specimens are inoculated directly into the culture media with the exception of urine specimens which are first centrifuged at 500xg and the sediment used for inocula. Collect specimens using a cotton swab. To avoid leakage, first move the medium at the top of the InPouch™ downward to the middle of the upper chamber. Tear off plastic above the white closure. In order to admit the swab, open the InPouch™ by pulling the closure tape’s middle tabs apart. Insert swab into upper chamber medium of the InPouch™ TV and elute specimen by rubbing swab between the InPouch™ TV walls. Remove the swab and discard. Liquid specimens are added directly to the upper chamber medium of the InPouch™ TV. When specimen inoculation is completed, squeeze the top of the InPouch™ closed, then roll down three rolls and fold tabs over. Keep InPouch™ in an upright position.
