Collection

Instructions

Collection precautions

  • Do NOT eat, drink, smoke or chew gum for 30 minutes before giving your sample.
  • Do NOT remove the plastic film from the funnel lid.

Procedure

Most people take between 2 and 5 minutes to deliver a saliva sample following steps 1 to 5.

Spit into funnel until the amount of liquid (not bubbles) reaches the fill line shown in picture #1. Keep the funnel upright until cap is secured - see point 4.

Hold the tube upright with one hand. Close the funnel lid with the other hand (as shown) 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 sample. Make sure that the lid is closed tightly.

Hold the tube upright. Unscrew the funnel from the tube.

Use the small cap to close the tube tightly.

Shake the capped tube for 5 seconds. Discard or recycle the funnel.
