You can also find collection kits from Sarstedt and Epitope. I've used both along with the Saliva 
Diagnostics System for various applications. They each have their pros and cons and it could 
depend upon your specific use as to the best one to utilize. I often use the following sources when 
searching for products.


Good Luck!
