    What is SalivaDirect TM ?

    SalivaDirect™ was developed by the Yale School of Public Health to efficiently test for SARS-CoV-2. This requires a high complexity CLIA certified laboratory, such as Access Medical Laboratories to perform the testing. While the difficult RNA-extraction process has been removed, this test is still considered complex, as it requires PCR instrumentation. SalivaDirect also protects healthcare workers from potential exposure to sick patients, and works around worldwide swab shortages.
     

    Stability

    Stability of spiked-in saliva samples used for the limit of detection experiment was determined by placing 3 different concentrations (12, 25, and 50 copies/µL) for 7 days under different temperature regimes (4°C, room temperature, and 30°C). Results were compared to results obtained in the limit of detection experiment (fresh). Samples were treated with ThermoFisher Scientific proteinase K and tested with the ThermoFisher TaqPath RT-qPCR kit on the Bio-Rad CFX96. Overall, samples were stable under each condition for at least 7 days.
