– Complete inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 within 5 minutes
– Safe and stable preservation of RNA up to 30 days at room temperature
– No cold chain required
– Blue color as visual pipetting control
– Independent validation with a range of common RT-qPCR platforms
– CE marked
– Mucolitic properties to reduce viscosity in mucus rich samples

More about the Saliva Collection Kit

Get familiar with our Saliva Collection Kit

which includes InActiv Blue® to guarantee a reliable outcome of SARS-CoV-2 RT-qPCR on saliva. The protocol for sample collection is so simple that it permits testing without the need for trained personnel, decreasing the risk of further transmission of COVID-19 disease! Of note, this is not a self test; the kit allows self-collection of saliva followed by testing in a qualified laboratory.

New generation of saliva collector

Blue Collect

Blue CollectTM

Notwithstanding the success of the Saliva Collection Kit, InActiv Blue continued with the development of an alternative saliva collection receptacle that has now been validated and CE-marked under the name “Blue Collect™”.

Did you know that 90% of patients prefer saliva collection with one of our receptacles instead of a nasopharyngeal swab for COVID-19 testing?
