Description

Testing using saliva samples (also known as saliva-based testing) has been
proposed as a less invasive solution to the long wait times characterized by
widespread traditional COVID-19 tests.

• Evidence on the accuracy and reliability of testing for COVID-19 using saliva
samples is currently limited in quality and quantity.
• While there is evidence to support the use of testing using saliva samples for
COVID-19, some studies have found conflicting results between different sample
specimens collected from the same individual and between individuals.
• International scientific literature is changing rapidly and there are currently several
ongoing research trials, including those in Canada, to determine the diagnostic
accuracy of COVID-19 testing using a saliva sample.

With cases on the rise and no known cure for the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19),
many jurisdictions have increased their COVID-19 testing capacity. Testing allows for earlier
detection, treatment, and contained spread through identification, isolation, and contact tracing.
Traditional testing requires a sample specimen to be collected via a nasopharyngeal, deep
nasal, or throat swab from suspected individuals. The sample is then tested for severe acute
respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) — the virus that causes COVID-19. Certain
challenges are posed by traditional sample collection methods, including potential supply
shortages when demand is high, discomfort to the individual being tested, long wait times, and
difficulty for health care workers (HCWs) performing the tests due to their invasive nature.
Testing using saliva samples (also known as saliva-based testing) has been proposed as
an alternative to traditional sample collection methods because it is less invasive, uses
different supplies and reagents, and may alleviate long wait times as an adjunct to standard
testing. Saliva samples have previously been used to detect diseases of the upper respiratory
tract and are currently being investigated for use against SARS-CoV-2
