  3. Are individual swabs to sample individual areas more accurate than BIC samples ?

They are equally accurate. Either approach can be compared to sampling using the same approach. The difference is that using individual samples allows a more direct relationship to the Standard to be established.

This is likely to be important when it comes to clients who have used BIC in the past. Still better to shift to SSA where possible in my opinion.
