How to Collect Saliva

How to collect saliva samples for Circadian Phase testing.

Ready to provide your saliva sample the easy way? In this video, Marci from Salimetrics demonstrates how to easily collect a “passive drool” saliva sample using SalivaBio’s Saliva Collection Aid and tubes.

Saliva Collection Step-by-Step Outline:

  1. Open pouch (if applicable) and remove the Saliva Collection Aid (SCA).
  2. Place ribbed-end of the SCA securely into a pre-labeled collection tube.
  3. Allow saliva to pool in mouth. Then, with head tilted forward, gently guide saliva through the SCA into the tube. DO NOT SPIT/BLOW or otherwise force saliva into the tube. This will create foaming and bubbles.
  4. After the tube is filled to the required volume, remove and discard SCA. Attach cap to collection tube and tighten. Store your sample as recommended.

Passive Drool Cautions:

  1. Use only as directed; Use each Saliva Collection Aid only once
  2. Do not use this device for children under the age of three (3), or without adult supervision
