how to conduct wipe
The materials in this kit are for 6 wipe areas at your site. The following instructions are for one wipe area. Please repeat these steps for each of the 5 additional areas you decide to wipe at your site:

  1. Put on gloves.
  2. With the paper tape measure, measure out 12 inches of the area to be wiped.
  3. Using four of the colored dots, place one at each corner so that the area measures 1 square foot (1 ft2).
    Please note: The 1 square foot measurement area is for flat surface areas. However, you can wipe areas that are smaller than 1 square foot such as door knobs, keyboards, etc.
    Square
  4. Select vials labeled "Wipe Area #1, V (Vertical)" and "Wipe Area #1, H (Horizontal)."
  5. Take one swab out of the bag and place it in the vial you labeled "Wipe Area #1, V." Recap the vial and shake until the solution is absorbed in the swab.
  6. Uncap the vial and spill the swab and contents of vial "Wipe Area #1, V" on to the area to be wiped.
  7. With a gloved hand, while being careful not to press too hard, use the swab to wipe the entire 1 square foot area with vertical strokes (up and down).
    Vertical Wipe
  8. Place the swab back in the vial marked "Wipe Area #1, V." Screw on the cap. Place the vial in the silver padded bag.
  9. In the second vial labeled "Wipe Area #1, H," take another swab from the bag and place it into the vial. Cap the vial and shake until the solution is absorbed in the swab.
  10. Uncap the vial and spill the swab and contents of vial "Wipe Area #1, H" on to the 1 square foot area you just wiped (each area is wiped both vertically and horizontally).
    Horizontal Wipe
  11. With a gloved hand, while being careful to not press too hard, wipe the entire area with horizontal strokes (side to side).
  12. Place the swab back in the vial marked, "Wipe Area #1, H." Screw on the cap.
  13. Place the two vials in the silver padded bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator until you are ready to ship.
  14. Dispose of your gloves. Change gloves between different sites.
  15. Mark on the Site Map Form information regarding the area wiped.

  16. Repeat steps 1-15 for each of the 5 additional areas to be wiped. Each site uses two swabs:
  17. One swab/vial for a horizontal (side to side) wipe and a second swab/vial for a vertical (up and down) wipe. Upon completion, you will have a total of 12 screw top vials containing swab.
  18. If you elect to conduct a control, either wipe an area known not to be contaminated, or simply drop a swab in the vial without wiping an area. IF you conduct a control, please make a note in your records, and notify us AFTER you have received your report.
