Abstract

There are several indications for taking swabs for the identification of organisms, including situations where Neisseria gonorrhoea infection or chlamydia is suspected, for the identification of herpes virus infections of cornea or conjunctiva and where fungal infections are suspected. Surveillance during outbreaks of particularly virulent types of adenovirus, many of which are nosocomial, may require swabs to be taken.
