Salivary Aldosterone

Technical Summary

Analyte Summary:
Analyte: Aldosterone
Aliases: NA
Serum-Saliva Correlation: 0.75-0.96
Optimum Collection Volume: 175 μL*
*Add 300 µl to the total volume of all tests for liquid handling
Interfering Factors
Posture affects aldosterone levels - we recommend sampling after 30 minutes in position.

Licorice (real) mimics aldosterone and should be avoided 2 weeks before collection.
Assay Summary:
Methodology: ELISA
Sensitivity: 35 pg/mL
Assay Range: ----
Assay Type: Quantitative

Considerations for adding Salivary DNA to analyte Studies:

You can combine salivary analytes with easy, accurate, and affordable genomic testing using Salimetrics SalivaLab and the same sample that you are already collecting – no specialized saliva collection devices or additional samples are required.

Don’t know what SNPs are right for you? The SalivaLab’s DNA team specializes in genetic testing services, we recommend you Request a DNA Consult (gratis) to learn more about common considerations such as # of samples, participant ethnicity, and IRB Approval.
