Saliva Collection Instructions

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.

Step One

Spit into the funnel until the amount of liquid (not bubbles) reaches the fill line shown in picture #1.

Step Two

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.

Step Three

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

Step Four

Use the small cap to close the tube tightly.

Step Five

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

Step Six

Make sure you’ve recorded your bar code on the TouchCare Coronavirus Testing Form online. For added safety, write your First Name, Last Name, and DOB directly on the vial using a sharpie. Place your sample in the Bio Hazard bag and seal it.
