Scientific evidence points to saliva test as ‘gold standard sample’

HALO has pioneered the use of saliva as a safe, accurate, affordable, and painless way of collecting samples for COVID-19 testing, and it’s great to see our ‘saliva test’ further supported by scientific evidence, recently published in The Lancet.

The authors say “saliva is the gold standard sample” for COVID-19 testing, compared to uncomfortable and technically challenging nasal swabs. They also make clear why saliva sampling avoids the false positives that swabs can sometimes cause.

Our mission is to provide highly accurate, good value, rapid testing to those that need it, to help control the spread of COVID-19.
