Saliva Sample Submission Requirements


Before you begin

Do NOT eat, drink, smoke or chew gum 30 minutes before giving your saliva sample

Step 1: Spit into Tube

Attach the funnel to the tube and spit into it until the amount of liquid saliva (not bubbles) reaches the new fill line.

Step 2: Close the Lid

Hold the tube upright with one hand. Close the funnel lid with the other hand by firmly pushing the lid until you hear a loud click. The liquid in the lid will be released into the tube to mix with the saliva. Make sure that the lid is closed tightly.

Step 3: Cap the Tube

Hold the tube upright. Unscrew the funnel from the tube. Use the small cap to close the tube tightly. Discard the funnel.

Step 4: Shake

Shake the capped tube for 5 seconds.
