    As clinical laboratories around the world have begun testing for Covid-19, we have encountered a new crisis: a shortage of the swabs required to obtain the necessary sample. These are called nasopharyngeal swabs, or NP swabs for short.

    The goal of this repository is sharing methods, testing procedures, and results required to manufacture NP swabs locally/everywhere at volumes of thousands per day, until standard manufacturers can make and deliver more.

    Because the crisis is now, the goal is to re-create versions of the swabs already in use (as opposed to creating better/fundamentally different redesigns).

    The files in this repo contain some information to get started. This includes .stl files that you can modify/print (see design_files above).

    If anyone has any questions, please reach out to any of the contributors here or to Dr. Ramy Arnaout, MD, DPhil, at
