German term or phrase: Spüllösung im selben Gefäß wieder auffangen
"Mundraum kräftig mit Spüllösung aus dem 50 mL Reagenzgefäß spülen. Gesamte Spüllösung auf einmal aufnehmen – nicht schlucken!
– Spüllösung im selben Gefäß wieder auffangen."

From a text about a multivitamin test. The test is done by scraping the inside of the cheeks with a toothbrush. Then you rinse with a solution from a test tube.

I'm just not quite sure about the last sentence. Is it just "Collect the rinse solution in the same tube"? I'm actually wondering about "spit it into the tube", because that is presumably the idea. TIA for helping me clear this up.

Thanks Sigrid. That wording, or something very similar, really does make the best sense in this context, but I just wanted to make sure I did in fact understand correctly. Thanks also to the peer graders for their input.
