Offering Gold-Standard COVID-19 Testing

SalivaDirect™ COVID-19 RT-PCR

What is SalivaDirect™?

SalivaDirect™ is a new and innovative RT-PCR testing method for SARS-CoV-2 detection that was developed by the Yale School of Public Health. SalivaDirect™ is a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in saliva collected in the presence of a trained observer. The test is Saliva based so you don’t have to stick an uncomfortable swab up your nose.

How is the sample collected?

  • 30 minutes before sample Collection avoid drinking or eating.
  • Hold the sample tube up so that it surrounds your mouth and gently release the saliva that has pooled in your mouth into the sample tube.
  • Slowly remove swab while rotating it.
  • If you have difficulty to produce enough saliva, imagine eating your favorite food or upcoming meal. Please do not ‘spit’ as this can cause droplets or aerosols to spray out at you.
  • Return your sample to the collection personnel.


SalivaDirect™ has not been FDA cleared or approved. It has been authorized by the FDA under an emergency use authorization for use by authorized laboratories. The test has been authorized only for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens. This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostic tests for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.
