Group Registration

Register your group with S&G Labs Hawaii then order your COVID-19 Screening kit
Your kit includes:

  • Swabs for each person in your group
  • Collection tubes to hold 15-25 swabs each and labels for each tube
  • Prepaid return envelope and shipping label
  • Instruction sheet

Self-Swab

This part is as easy as picking your nose – even the kids cant do this on their own!

  1. Before swabbing each person should wash their hands or use hand sanitizer
  2. Gently blow your nose to bring your mucus forward
  3. Use the provided swab to collect your sample on the inside of your lower nostril – no deep swabbing necessary
  4. Place 15 – 25 swabs in each labeled collection tube
  5. IMPORTANT: Keep a record of whose sample is in each tube in the event there is a positive result and every one in the pod needs to be retested. Use the included tracking sheet example to identify each person in each labeled tube.

    Please note: Each tube should contain a minimum of 15 swabs. Collection tubes with less than 15 swabs will incur an additional $50 fee before results are processed
    Be sure to screw the lid on tight and check for leaks before placing the collection tubes in the prepaid shipping envelopes
