Medical Offices of Manhattan’s Gastroenterologist, Dr. Andrea Culliford speaks to Helio about Saliva Tests Emerge As New Option To Diagnose COVID-19..
She’s quoted saying:
“A blood sample can only be taken by a phlebotomist. But nearly any health care professional can take a saliva sample, giving health systems greater flexibility. However, saliva tests have limitations, according to Culliford. For example, more data are needed to determine if they are as accurate as antibody titers in blood samples.”
