Salimetrics Offers New Saliva Collection Aid for Easy Collection of Passive Drool Samples

  •     Vented design helps reduce foaming of the saliva sample
  •     One-time use and dispose
  •     Constructed of polypropylene to avoid sample retention or contamination
  •     Universal fit with common external thread cryovials
  • Although some donors find it preferable to use absorbent swabs such as the Salimetrics Oral Swab to collect saliva samples, these devices have a number of limitations, including:

    •     Retention of certain analytes in the swab
    •     Swab may cause assay interference for certain analytes
    •     Difficulty in observing the volume of saliva collected by the swab
    •     Swab complicates estimation of saliva flow rates, which is required for some analytes
    •     Under certain conditions, swab may possibly collect specific glandular saliva

    The Saliva Collection Aid can help avoid these problems associated with absorbent swabs by making it easier for donors to give whole saliva samples. According to Douglas A. Granger, PhD, Director of CISBR and professor of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health at Johns Hopkins, who helped develop the new device, “It’s not rocket science – it’s a practical solution that will enable saliva analytes to be integrated effectively into basic and clinical studies and consumer applications.”
