Swab Method, Adults – (50/pk)


Video Instructions

The SalivaBio Oral Swab (SOS) Method brings participant comfort & interference-free results to a broad array of research and diagnostic applications. Unlike other swabs, the family of SalivaBio Swabs are the ONLY swab saliva collection devices proven to have the highest correlation to passive drool. Validated for multiple salivary biomarkers, analytes and DNA, SalivaBio swabs provide confidence in the accuracy of your results. The SOS features a proprietary, synthetic (non-organic), hygienic, individually wrapped oral fluid collection device, specifically designed for both increasing participant compliance and saliva analysis. Medical-grade packaging minimizes the possibility of environmental contaminants, and the swab material provides ready-to-process samples by filtering out unwanted mucins, cells and other aggregates from oral fluid specimens. SalivaBio’s SOS device maintains sample pH, has verified recoveries and is backed by a Salimetrics QC report, to verify recovery and conformity across multiple lots while maintaining minimal lot-to-lot variability.

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 typically varies between 200-1000 µL depending on an individual’s salivary flow rate, hydration status, mucus content, and the application of stimulus. View the specifications 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.
