While nasopharyngeal swabs remain the gold standard for SARS-CoV-2 detection, salivary collection is an attractive alternative: it can be easily collected and demonstrated high detection sensitivity in the infection’s early stages. Compared to sputum, saliva avoids spitting-related risks for healthcare professionals working with contagious patients.
The lemon-aromatized cap is a unique feature of LolliSponge™. It provides two advantages: stimulate salivary glands to produce saliva – reducing the time necessary to collect the proper amount of saliva – and make the collection more pleasant for kids.
The sampling is performed just by keeping the sponge stick in your mouth for a few minutes without spitting or biting. This easy procedure can be performed at POC as well as at home, using LolliSponge™ as a self-collection device.
A non-invasive device that can be used to collect saliva from fragile or non-collaborative individuals.
Liquid-free, dry device and compact tube for smooth shipping and transport.
Standard tube compatible with standard bench centrifuges. Saliva samples can be mixed directly with molecular biology reagents without any inhibition or interference issue.
