One way to make sure that your own contribution is clear and easy to identify is by marking it with words — perhaps by adding phrases like In this study, the samples were collected using a suction tube or In our experiments the samples were collected using a suction tube, and by identifying the procedure used by other researchers with careful references at the appropriate place in the sentence (In Brown (1999) the samples were collected using a suction tube).

There are five possible uses that you may need. Note the different tenses.

Method 2:
