Good News: Vault's At-Home COVID-19 Saliva-Based Test is Non-Invasive

By The Vault Team

We get it: Nasal swabs are no fun. Whether they cause you temporary discomfort or the thought of using one prevents you from getting tested, we’re here to help.

Vault’s COVID-19 test, developed by RUCDR Infinite Biologics and Spectrum Solutions, was the first saliva test granted emergency use authorization by the FDA. Remotely supervised by a healthcare professional over Zoom or on-site, the process is efficient and quick. Best of all, there are no nasal swabs involved.

Our tests use saliva, rather than a nasal swab, to reliably test for the presence of COVID-19. In addition to delivering results quickly and discreetly, here are some of the additional benefits of Vault’s COVID-19 saliva-based test:

  • Accuracy: One study found that the mouth plays a bigger role in SARS-CoV-2 infection than previously thought, suggesting that saliva-based testing may be more accurate than nasal swab testing.

  • Comfort: No swab, no problem. The fast, non-invasive, and pain-free testing process is monitored by a trained test supervisor over Zoom—with the actual sample collection taking just a few minutes. 

  • Access: With Vault’s at-home test, all you need is an internet connection. In addition to taking the test with a supervisor online, results are delivered electronically via email within 24-48 hours of sending your sample back. No trips to a clinic or doctor’s office required. 

  • Security: Whether you’re testing individually or through an organization, all records are managed through secure organizational reporting in compliance with applicable privacy laws, HIPAA, and individual authorization.

At Vault, we’re proud to be a part of the solution in the fight against Covid-19. To learn more about how Vault’s at-home saliva test kit can help you and your community stay safe, visit this page.
