    Taking too little material or taking it while taking antibiotics may result in a sterile culture and the need to repeat the test.
  • The test material is a rectal swab taken with a sterile swab with transport medium.
    Samples are taken by the patient himself.
    Swabs for the test, together with a special referral, are available at CM Luxmed collection points.
    The swab should be taken daily (1 piece) for 3 consecutive days.
    Each swab must be labeled with the patient's name and the date and time the material was taken.
    The collected material (3 pcs of swabs + the form attached to the samples) in Lublin is accepted only at 11 Kr贸lewska Street (from Monday to Thursday during the working hours of the collection center).
    Outside Lublin, the material is accepted at any CM Luxmed facility from Monday to Thursday

    Samples should be delivered to the laboratory on the day the third swab is taken.


The test is performed to obtain a certificate for sanitary-epidemiological purposes.
Carrying Salmonella can be associated with very serious consequences.
Salmonella bacteria can be divided into species, subspecies and numerous serological types, causing different types of infections such as small and large intestinal inflammation, food poisoning, and typhoid fever.
The lesions that Salmonella causes are not limited only to gastrointestinal complaints (diarrhea, vomiting), but the bacteria can also cause infection of internal organs, joints and even sepsis.
Infection with the bacteria can also be asymptomatic, and sometimes cause only mild symptoms of food poisoning.
Shigella bacteria cause dysentery (dysentery).
