The use of saliva for Covid-19 RT-PCR testing is proven to be more sensitive than other sample types, and because it contains antibodies, has the benefit of being usable for antibody screening to see if you have previously been infected by SARS-CoV-2 the virus that causes Covid-19.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Order Online

Purchase your COVID-19 Test analysis and write down the TOKEN number in your payment receipt. 

This number is checked against your account when we receive your saliva sample. 

2. Saliva Collection

The Saliva Collection Tube (SCT) allows you to collect your saliva via "passive drool" - which is used by the lab to test for the SARS-CoV-2 virus genetic material and Covid-19 antibodies, usable for screening to see if you have previously been infected by SARS-CoV-2 the virus that causes Covid-19.

HOW TO TAKE THE TEST

STEP 1

Rinse mouth with water 30 minutes before taking saliva sample, to remove any food debris. 

IMPORTANT: do not drink for 30 minutes before sample is taken. Water will dilute the saliva, while caffeine in drinks inhibits the enzymes that are used in the COVID-19 PCR test and may result in false negative results.

STEP 2

Open foil pouch and remove the Saliva Collection Tube (SCT).

STEP 3

Place ribbed-end of the SCT securely into the collection vial (see CAUTIONS).

STEP 4

Allow saliva to pool in mouth for 15 to 30 seconds, then tilt head forward, gently guide saliva through the SCT into the vial.

 

Fill to above the middle black line of the vial.

STEP 5

Remove and discard SCT.

Attach cap to collection vial and tighten.

STEP 6

Complete the form in the packaging and place the vial & completed form in the biohazard pouch.

STEP 7

Return for processing.

IMPORTANT: If you can't return immediately, store the sample in the fridge.
