What do you need to do?

We require you to answer some survey questions, and give us a saliva sample, collected through a kit we provide you, and that’s it.

We will handle the rest.

Instructions to collect saliva sample

  1. 30 minutes before collecting the saliva sample, stop all forms of eating, drinking or smoking, and gargle your mouth with mouthwash (e.g. Listerine).
  2. Using the collection funnel that is attached to the collection tube, fill the tube with your saliva, up to the 2ml mark.
  3. Open the cap of the tube containing the cell preservation solution. Keep this cap for step 6 below.
  4. Pour the cell preservation solution into the collection tube via the funnel.
  5. Remove the funnel from the collection tube by turning it anti-clockwise.
  6. Use the cap from step 3 above to seal the collection tube. Ensure that the cap is tightly secured.
  7. Turn the tube upside down and back up for 5 times to ensure the contents are mixed properly.
  8. Store the collected saliva sample in the refrigerator until it is sent to GENEmate.
