Salimetrics Infant’s Swab (SIS)
Designed for the safe collection of saliva from infants up to 6 months of age, the Salimetrics Infant’s Swab is similar to our Children’s swab (SCS), but with smaller dimensions (6.3 x 90 mm) appropriate for the tiny mouths of infants. The long length of the swab allows one end to be held while the other end is in the infant’s mouth, eliminating any choking hazard. The SIS is made of the same durable polymer used in our Salimetrics Oral Swab (SOS) and SCS, so there is no danger of the swab breaking up while in use. The taste and texture of the SIS are acceptable to children, and the volume of sample recovered is typically in the range of 200-1000 µL.
The SIS has the same freedom from interference and verified recoveries as our SOS and SCS. Samples collected using the SIS can be tested for cortisol, cotinine, testosterone, SIgA, alpha-amylase, CRP, and chromogranin A.
