Saliva Collection Tube

DNA Genotek

Mail-order DNA kits are appealing due to the simplicity of preparing saliva samples from home, but it is a properly functioning collection vessel that makes the service possible. DW developed a collection system that works with conventional plastic test tubes to preserve saliva for the trip to the analysis labs. Closing the lid after saliva is added activates fluid storage components to ensure problem-free delivery, and the kit was designed to ensure it would fit through home mail slots.
