We are proud to support this innovative project through our COVID-19 Emergency Fund!Saliva sampling should be considered as an alternative to nasopharyngeal swabs for detecting SARS-CoV-2 infection, according to a new study by a group of researchers at the RI-MUHC and McGill University. Researchers found that the sensitivity of saliva vs nasopharyngeal swab samples was virtually identical. “Nasopharyngeal swabs are very sensitive, but they are time-consuming and require a trained health professional to administer. Saliva-based samples are as sensitive and much cheaper, while having the advantage of being self-collected. This removes the need for a trained health professional and reduces exposure risk,” explains the corresponding author of the study, Jonathon Campbell, a postdoctoral fellow at the RI-MUHC.
