All Clear will visit you at your home or workplace to complete sample collection. After a quick check-in process to confirm your identity, clients are provided a sample pottle that they will need to deposit 2mL of saliva into. It is a pain-free, quick, and easy process.
We have extensive experience in following accurate scientific procedures to ensure sample and information collection is both adequate and correct. By engaging us to oversee the sample collection process we can ensure accuracy at every step of the process as well as providing a convenient solution to ongoing COVID-19 surveillance requirements.
Typically the entire process will take less than ten minutes.
In short YES! Both Saliva and nasopharyngeal sampling methods have a very similar laboratory process. SalivaDirect is an extraction-free, dulapex RT-qPCR laboratory developed test validated with reagents and instruments from multiple vendors and was submitted for FDA emergency use Authorization in July 2020. While saliva testing is more affordable, easier to collect and safer, collection of nasopharyngeal swabs has been associated with variable, inconsistent, and false negative test results due to the technical difficulties of taking a proper swab.
The saliva sample is easy to produce and does not involve the discomfort associated with inserting a swab, especially a nasopharyngeal swab, into the nose or mouth.
As a self-collected sample, saliva is more acceptable to collect, especially for those needing regular testing.
The sample collection process is designed so that no one will touch your sample. Suitable PPE gear is worn by all our staff and the collection site will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised. Everyone who enters a collection site will also be encouraged to use Hand sanitizer as well as the NZ Ministry of Health COVID Tracer App.
After Collection, the samples are transported to the laboratory for processing. You can normally expect result with 24-30hrs. The provision of results is coordinated with your organisation.
COVID-19 is a notifiable disease and therefore once a positive result is confirmed in the laboratory the All-Clear Team will immediately advise the local Medical Officer of Health and your organisation to ensure you get the health support you require as soon as possible. A diagnostic swab test should be taken as soon as possible.
Thirty (30) minutes before your test: No teeth brushing, mouthwash, food, fluids, vaping, smoking, or chewing gum. Note, hydrating well earlier in the day will help you to salivate during your test.
We understand that plans can change so we ask that you please refrain from booking your test until your itinerary is confirmed. It is also important to ensure that the Saliva PCR test is an approved testing method by your chosen destination. Currently our Saliva PCR test Does not meet the entry requirements for Queensland Australia, Western Australia, Fiji, Italy, China, and Egypt. If your flights change, no problem – please get in touch so we can transfer your booking to another date/time. There is no fee to change your booking, however if a different service is required (weekend or urgent service vs standard) then an extra fee may be levied.
In the event of you requesting to cancel our services we can process a refund back onto your nominated card (or bank account if you paid via PoliPay). We do charge an administrative / booking fee for all refunds of $30 + GST per sample originally booked. This fee encompasses 3rd party credit card fees incurred, our time consulting with you, booking in the job and time processing the refund.
