How do I provide my saliva sample?

Each kit contains detailed and simple instructions for providing a sample of saliva.

There are only a few things to keep in mind:

  • Do not eat, drink, smoke or use chewing gum for 30 minutes before collecting samples of saliva so that no impurities are contained in the saliva and enough epithelial cells have accumulated.

  • Do not remove plastic wrap from the funnel cap.

  • Collect saliva into the tube using a funnel until it is between clearly marked lines.

  • Ensure that your sample contains only liquid saliva, without bubbles.

  • Close the cap tightly by pressing on it until you hear a click. Unscrew the funnel from the tube and close tightly with a small cap. Shake for 5 seconds.

Now you can send a sample of saliva to our laboratory. Also, make sure your sample is registered before transferring it to our courier.
