The world’s most child-friendly respiratory swab was launched in Europe today at Medica 2022 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Rhinoswab Junior is the first nasal swab developed specifically for children. Its unique design addresses one of the pandemics’ major challenges − testing reluctance − created by the fear, anxiety and discomfort associated with traditional combined throat and nose swabs.
Rhinoswab Junior is designed and manufactured by Rhinomed Limited, an Australia-based global nasal technology company. The Rhinoswab Junior is a novel nasal swab designed specifically for children. The Rhinoswab Junior comfortably sits inside the nose and captures a significantly larger yield than standard nasal swabs. Its unique and engaging design removes the fear children experience with existing swabs. It can easily be integrated into existing rapid antigen and PCR tests for a range of respiratory viruses including SARS-CoV-2, RSV, Influenza, etc.
