Sample Collection

Saliva test tube

Use Case Examples

Saliva tests may be more accessible for students with special needs, sensory issues, sinus or nasal injuries, or other aversions to an anterior nasal swab.

Saliva samples are collected with a test tube

All ages can self-collect

Results in 12 to 36 hours

Vendor manages reporting and notifications

No CLIA waiver required
