EVALUATION OF ANATOMICALLY-DESIGNED FLOCKED SWABS FOR THE MOLECULAR DETECTION OF ENTERIC PATHOGENS IN CHILDREN ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL WITH SEVERE GASTROENTERITIS IN BOTSWANA >
Two-hundred and eighty matched bulk stool and anatomically-designed flocked swab samples were collected from children admitted to hospital with acute diarrhea in Botswana. Parents were asked about the acceptability of the swab collection method as compared with bulk stool sampling. Almost all parents/guardians found the swabs acceptable. Flocked rectal swabs significantly facilitate the molecular diagnosis of diarrheal disease in children.
