DiagnosTechs Lab Instructions
The kit you receive will contain 5 small specimen bottles, 4 with blue tops and 1 with a green top. Each blue-top bottle is labeled as to the time it is to be collected: morning, noon, afternoon and night. On the back of the instruction sheet, you will find the exact times you are to collect each of these 4 specimens. Please follow the instructions on the left side of the back page, under “Saliva Specimens”. You will also note there are some pre-test instructions on what not to eat in before or during the test. Fill the 4 blue tubes to the 5 ml. mark (fifth line) with clear liquid saliva (not with foamy saliva).
After you have collected the noon and afternoon specimens, pour 1ml. (the distance between two adjacent lines) of each into the green tube, so you have 2ml. in the green tube.
Write your name and date of birth on all vials.
Place the 5 vials in the test kit mailer and take to the Post Office. There is no postage required.
