Title
(EN) METHODS AND DEVICES FOR COLLECTION OF EXHALED AEROSOLS
Abstract
(EN)

The present disclosure relates to methods and devices for the collection of exhaled aerosols. In some embodiments, the device disclosed herein comprises a cup and an attachable lid, wherein the cup has a conical base and the lid includes a pipette access port with a removable cap and a sealed buffer reservoir. In some embodiments, the method for a subject to collect exhaled aerosols disclosed herein comprises the steps of placing a collection cup against the subject's mouth, the subject coughing into the collection cup at least once, immediately closing the device by reattached a lid to the collection cup, placing the collection cup in a transport bag, and providing the transport bag to a processor. The processor can then incubate the transport bag containing the collection cup, add buffer to the collection cup to rinse and suspend any collected exhaled aerosols, and then extract the buffer containing the exhaled aerosols either for storage or for immediate amplification and sequencing for the detection of pathogens.
