Do not eat, drink, smoke, or use oral hygiene products for at
least 30 minutes before you start the collection process.
Prior to collection, review the detailed instructions for the
Super SAL(TM) Universal Saliva Collection Kit below,
particularly the illustrations showing the appearance of the
Sample Volume Adequacy Indicator (SVAI) changing from white
to fully red after sample collection. Open the package
containing the Super SAL(TM) Universal Saliva Collection Kit
and place contents on a clean and dry surface.

1. Place contents on a clean and dry surface. In preparation
for the saliva collection, pool saliva in the mouth. Video

/2. Attach the Collection Tube provided to the base of the
Compression Tube firmly. Sample collection may now begin.
3. Place the tip of the pad of the Collector where saliva has
pooled. The Collector may be removed from the mouth periodically
to read the SVAI, but resume collection immediately afterward.
4. Collect until the appearance of the SVAI changes completely
to red. The collection procedure should last approximately 1-5
minutes.
5. Place the white absorbent pad end into the Compression
Tube holding the Collector in an upright and vertical
position and firmly push the plunger downwards to transfer
saliva from the absorbent pad into the Collection Tube. Push
and hold for 30 seconds.
