  • Write name and date of birth on the white space on your collection tube with a pen or fine point marker
  • Spit into tube until the amount of saliva (not bubbles) reaches to fill line
  • Close lid on funnel until a loud click is heard
  • Unscrew funnel from top of tube
  • Use small cap to close tube tightly
  • Shake closed tube for at least 5 secconds
  • Place your labeled tube back into the small clear plastic box

Step 3: Mailing Your Sample

Before mailing remember to label your sample with your name and date of birth and write the date you collected your sample on the top of the Myriad Test Request Form. Proper sample identification that matches the TRF is required to perform the test.
