DLMO Collection Kit Overview

7-pt Circadian Phase Collection Kit Overview

(Optional 9-pt Collection Kit Also Available)


The Circadian Phase Assessment saliva collection kit arrives with everything patients need to collect, handle, and transport saliva back to the Salimetrics CLIA-Certified Saliva Laboratory using the most robust collection, shipping and handling protocol available for analyzing salivary melatonin samples for circadian phase indices, such as DLMO.

Below is a list and description of the main components patients will utilize to complete their Circadian Phase test.

Sample Collection Instructions

The standard 7-sample collection kit features highly detailed and robust sample collection instructions ensure that your patient’s samples are collected and stored according to the highest quality standards. The 7 sample includes standard sample collection timing for DLMO, and also an option for custom scheduling so that you can fine-tune the collection protocol for complex cases when you would like to adjust the timing of your patient’s sample collection.

*9-Sample collection kits come with an open sample collection schedule, to allow you the most flexibility in sample collection timing, whether you are capturing onset, offset, or diurnal melatonin profiles.


Melatonin Sampling Form

The sampling form provides patients a space to log sample collection times, so that the melatonin onset can be reliably calcualted over time.


Sample Collection Devices

Each kit comes complete with SalivaBio’s gold-standard passive drool collection system, including Saliva Collection Aids and SalivaBio cryovials. This system has been validated by Salimetrics to provide the highest-quality passive drool samples without interference to endogenous melatonin levels and has been utilized by millions of participants in research studies worldwide.


Sample Shipping Flask and Refrigerant

Salimetrics tried-and-tested, no hassle, sample flask and refrigerant combination provides samples up to 3 full days of cooling power to keep samples stable during transit to the Salimetrics CLIA-Certified Saliva Laboratory. Freezing the whole flask in a standard household freezer and it’s ready to go.


Pre-Paid, Pre-Labeled Return Shipping Box

Everything your patient needs to safely ship samples back to the Salimetrics CLIA-Certified Saliva Laboratory, including sealing flask label, tape, and absorbent padding. Patients can simply drop off samples at the nearest FedEx pickup location.


Results Access Card

If your patients are receiving a copy of their Circadian Phase results, they will automatically be sent a copy of their results via a HIPAA-Compliant portal, using their Results Access Card. There is no need to keep track of or send a copy of the results directly to patients.
