Each swab tests one site (usually nasal, throat, groin, axilla or perineum) for the presence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

This MRSA swab test is tested to detect Meticillin resistant staphylococcus aureus carrier status. This test is requested when the patient wants to determine if they are a MRSA carrier.
