Carefully opened Binx test kit bag

Carefully open your test kit. Do not rip the bag because you will need to use it to return your sample.

Collect Your Sample

You must collect your saliva sample on the same day that you return your test kit. Included in your kit is an instruction leaflet that will guide you through each step in detail. Please follow these instructions carefully.

A few key important considerations:

  • Be sure to carefully open your kit. Do not tear the package. You will need it to return your sample.
  • Spitting could conceivably transmit coronavirus, so please collect your saliva sample when you are alone in your own room.
  • Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes prior to collecting your saliva sample. Do it before having coffee, eating breakfast, or brushing your teeth — or wait until you haven’t consumed anything in the prior 30 minutes.
