We illustrate SLA 3d-printing printing methods to produce COVID-19 nasopharyngeal testing swabs, proving that they can be produced in a manner that is safe and clean for the users. 3D printing is an effective and efficient tool that can be used for a wide variety of applications, especially for a quick turn around in response to a shortage, and specifically for this application, this method was created in response to the swab shortage in early summer 2020.
