Specifications

Rhinoswab by Rhinomed is a novel new nasal swab that is comfortable, easy to use and opens up the potential for mass, population wide sample self-collection.

It was proven to be 100% accurate for the detection of SARS-COV-2 in spiking studies conducted by the Victorian Infectious Diseases Laboratory (VIDRL) when used in rt-PCR testing.

Rhinoswab is built on Rhinomed’s nasal technology that is used by athletes, clinicians and customers from all over the world to solve their breathing, sleep and nasal congestion issues. Rhinomed’s existing FDA and TGA registered nasal products have been worn comfortably and safely since 2016 with 1.2 million users registering over 30,000,000 positive user experiences.

ADDRESSING UNMET NEEDS FOR SAFE, EFFECTIVE & COMFORTABLE SAMPLE COLLECTION

There are many challenges associated with the current standard of care swabs and sampling procedures that may lead to false negatives, risk to healthcare workers (HCW), increased costs and a reluctance of patients to get tested.


Mass high frequency testing needs a comfortable, self-administered, accurate and cost effective sampling method.

Rhinoswab by Rhinomed provides a very real, near term solution to the need for effective, easy and rapid sampling as part of an efficient testing response to Covid-19.

There are three areas of challenge to sampling everyone frequently with the existing swab: the swab itself, the need for healthcare workers and issues with the patient.
