Swab Method, Adults – (50/pk)
The SalivaBio Oral Swab (SOS) Method brings participant comfort & interference-free results to a broad array of research and diagnostic applications. As the ONLY validated swab saliva collection device for multiple salivary biomarkers, analytes and DNA, you can be confident in the accuracy of your results. The SOS features a synthetic (non-organic), hygienic, and individually wrapped oral fluid collection device specifically designed for salivary bio-specimen analysis. Medical-grade packaging minimizes the possibility of environmental contaminants, and the proprietary swab material filters unwanted mucins, cells and other aggregates from oral fluid specimens, while simultaneously collecting DNA to provide ready-to-use samples for laboratory processing. SalivaBio's SOS device maintains sample pH, has verified recoveries and is backed by a Salimetrics QC report, to guarantee consistent lot-to-lot performance.
The complete saliva collection kit includes the SalivaBio oral swab, swab storage tube, and sample collection instructions, and is ready to use in the field or on-site. The volume of sample recovered is typically in the range of 200-1000 µL.View the chart below for a list of analytes approved to be collected with the SOS. If your analyte is not listed, we recommend collecting with the passive drool method. However, a pilot study may reveal a high correlation in your subject group, which will enable you to utilize this method effectively.
