What is a PCR Saliva Test?
Saliva is one of the dangers of a Covid-19 infection in the spread of the coronavirus. This makes saliva extremely suitable for diagnosing a disease without the use of an invasive nose and throat swab. Saliva reflects our health. For this reason, saliva has been extensively researched as a diagnostic tool and ideally suited to detect Covid-19 in the body. We use the PCR Saliva test for this.
Research into PCR Saliva Test
Research has been done on testing using saliva. The study suggested that saliva could be an accessible diagnostic method for detecting the presence of Coronavirus. The study looked at the results of 3 different studies; in Italy, in Hong Kong and in Shenzhen. All studies have shown that the Coronavirus is indeed present in the saliva of COVID-19 patients. In Italy 87%, Hong Kong 91.6% and Shenzhen 100% of the patients. This suggests from research that saliva and thus the saliva test is potentially a very useful source of diagnosis.
