Additional Item Description:

The IBI Saliva Collection Kit is designed to easily capture and store saliva samples deposited directly from patients. This saliva kit is optimized for use in epigenetic studies.


Kit includes funnel that easily attaches to the 10ml collection tube containing 2ml of saliva stabilization solution. The 10ml saliva collection vial carries a label clearly showing the level at which saliva needs to be deposited and also contains a bar code for easy tracking. This saliva collection kit is designed for use in high throughput automated liquid handling systems and is ideal for epigenetic studies and genetic studies.

Saliva samples are much more cost-effective to ship than blood samples; they can be shipped to a processing center via UPS or FedEx per applicable shipping regulations. (See UPS Biological Substances or FedEx - Packaging Guidelines for Clinical Samples for details.) The DNA in the saliva sample is stable at room temperature for several days, but suggested storage is at +4°C for up to a month until DNA extraction can be performed.

A standard ethanol precipitation DNA extraction method can be used on the subsequent saliva sample. This simple protocol typically yields 100 µg of DNA from a 5 ml saliva specimen. The resulting DNA is suitable for nearly all downstream applications and optimized for epigenetic analyses, i.e. Smoke Signature™. (Smoke Signature™ Assay—developed by Behavioral Diagnostics, Inc. (BDI)—is a new epigenetic test for quantifying cigarette smoking.)

IBI Saliva Collection Kits are factory packaged and ready for use. They are available in a wide range of quantities including a single kit up to packs of 50.
