How to collect my saliva sample (with video)

Everlywell - Saliva Collection Instructions from Everlywell on Vimeo.

Collecting your saliva sample for your EverlyWell test kit is simple, whether it's for a Women's Health Test or any other test offered by Everlywell.
Step 1: Take all of the contents out of the box. Please note that most saliva collections need to be collected at a specific time of the day as detailed in the instructions.
Step 2: Do not eat or drink, smoke, brush your teeth, or chew gum within 30 minutes before collecting a saliva sample.

Step 3: Write your  name, collection date, and collection time on the tube label, otherwise the sample may be rejected by the lab.

Step 4: Unscrew the lid. Collect enough saliva until the tube is at least 75% full (not including bubbles).

Step 5: Tightly cap the saliva tube to prevent leaking in transit to the lab.

Step 6: Place the saliva tube in the biohazard bag, seal it and place it in the freezer until you are ready to mail it.


Place your sample back into the box. Send the box back in the return envelope using the shipping label provided (located at the bottom of the box). Send back your sample using the shipping carrier listed on your return label.
