COVID-19 Saliva Rapid Test
Spit instead of smear
The new German COVID-19 test strategy includes free rapid tests for all citizens, as promised by federal health minister Jens Spahn (02/2021). This offer includes our new BfArM accredited COVID-19 saliva test.
Standard COVID-19 testing in Germany is performed with nasopharyngeal swabs - at high risk of infection for the physician taking the sample. However, there is study-based evidence that saliva samples of positively tested patients have even higher concentrations of SARS-CoV-2 than nasopharyngeal swabs (Wyllie et al.).
We are pleased to refer, with permission, to the commentary by Prof. Dr. med. dent. Georg Gaßmann about our COVID-19 spit test.
Our COVID-19 saliva test is a chromatographic antigen rapid test for saliva samples - easy to use and easy to interprete!

"finally! Biological common sense has won! It was clear to every biologically thinking person from the outset that in a virus-infected person the viruses can be detected not only martially on the back of the throat or by super unpleasant nasal swabbing, but if there can also be found reliably in the bacterially and virally communicating saliva and of course also in the sulcus fluid (Gupta, S., Mohindra, R., Chauhan, P.
