The nasal cavity is a highly complex air-filled space with several distinct zones. As the first part of the
respiratory tract and because of its connexions with other body compartments, its study is of great
interest, and not only for virus testing. This poster reviews the anatomy of the nasal cavity, the
microbiota found there and presents the results of a small comparative study carried out for clinical
purposes between sampling by the operator and self-sampling by the volunteer.
