1. SURFACE TESTING

Test any surface what so ever, including any fabrics/clothing, but be more careful when you swipe the saturated sponge on the fabrics, not to press hard on the sponge because the fabric’s fibres will absorb the buffer fluid when swiping hard and so you will not have much buffer fluid to test.
Apply only a very light pressure touch on the sponge while swiping the suspect surfaces.

5. URINE/LIQUID TESTING

Test urine or any suspicious looking liquid. You will need to get permission from the suspect before you can take any urine or any other bodily fluids from the suspect. Collect a sample of the urine or any other liquid/fluid into a container before you can commence the testing.

6. SALIVA TESTING

Test the saliva from a person you suspect. You will have to get permission from the person to take the sample. Use the sponge for about 3 minutes, to get enough saliva from the back of the person's mouth, between the gums and the inside of the cheek.
