The standard kit size of this SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Saliva Card test kit is 20 tests per box; 24 boxes per carton.
To save freight cost, sometimes bulk packing is used, meaning test strip, cassette or multi-test panel is packed in single aluminum pouch; 50 or 100 pouches in one plastic bag; and then plastic bags are packed in cartons along with the unfolded boxes for the test kits. In this way, the customers can easily pack the tests into test kits after receiving the bulk packed goods.

To carry out the assay with a SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Saliva Test Cassette, Saliva should be collected according to the instructions given in the Instruction For Use included in the test kit. After collecting, it is preferable to perform the testing as early as possible; if not viable, the specimen should be stored properly. A general introduction about the collection, and storage of the specimens is given below.
1. Rinse individual’s mouth with clear water and discard before test is recommended.
2. Wait for 5 mins before saliva collection.
3. Instruct individual to place their lips over the collecting funnel and collect saliva until the saliva reaches the indicator line (about 1ml).
(Attention: Do not eat, drink, smoke or use oral hygiene products for at least 10 minutes before the collection process)
Saliva Storage Condition
The saliva specimens should be tested as soon as possible after collection.
Colloidal Gold Chromatographic Immuno Double Antibody Sandwich method is used in this SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Saliva Test Cassette to detect the SARS-CoV-2 Antigen in human Saliva specifically. The introduction of this Colloidal Gold Chromatographic Immuno Double Antibody Sandwich testing principle is given blow.
In the double antibody sandwich lateral flow chromatographic rapid test, two antibodies are used to detect viral protein or antigen.
In the test band region, antibody specific to the target antigen or protein is immobilized. In the end of the membrane strip where the samples are added, another antibody conjugated with colloidal gold particles is embedded.
During the testing process, specimen from the patient is added to the end of the membrane strip. The antibody conjugate particles will resolve into the specimen, where the antibody conjugate will react and bound to the target protein or viral antigen, if present.
This antigen-antibody conjugate complex then moves along the strip to the testing band region, under capillary effect. The immobilized antibody in the test line region then bound to another binding site on the antigen complex, and the antibody-antigen-antibody complex is fixed on test band region.
When the complex congregates, the highly concentrated colloidal gold particles will develop some red or pink color, indicate a positive result.
If there is no target protein or antigen in the specimen, the colloidal gold particles will not congregate and no color will develop, indicating a negative result.
