If you are looking for a cost-efficient method of testing a group of fewer than 250 people without symptoms of COVID-19, the FDA suggests that you should consider pool testing. Pool testing is simply when samples are combined in the lab and then the mixture is tested to see if there are any positive results in the group. Since several samples are tested at once, the price of testing can be dramatically lower than individual testing options.
The process of finding a solution that puts people of all ages at ease can be frustrating. We believe that leaders and managers should focus more on their work than on the pandemic. Meenta is partnering with Protean BioDiagnostics labs to bring a world-class pool testing experience. Contact a Meenta representative today (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more about how we can help you have a peaceful back-to-work experience, free from the worry of infection.

What is Protean COVID-19 Virtual Pool Testing?
Protean BioDiagnostics uses a technology called SalivaDirect, which is a process developed at the Yale School of Public Health to test persons suspected of having COVID-19 for the virus, SARS-CoV-2.
- Specific: The assay was determined to have a specificity of 94.1%.
- Sensitive: Limit of detection of 1 copy/mL.
This test requires a minimum of 1 mL of liquid saliva (below bubbles) in a tightly sealed collection tube. Do not add anything to the saliva sample. A self-collection kit will be sent directly to you and will contain full instructions on how to perform the self-collection. The kit will contain everything needed to collect the samples and ship them to a Protean laboratory.
What is your saliva sample collection method?
We use a simple self-collection method that is composed of a 2 mL cryogenic vial and saliva collection aid (straw). The saliva straw fits into a cryogenic vial and the testing individual deposits 1 mL of saliva through the straw into the vial. 1 mL of saliva is required for testing.
Is a saliva sample stable at room temperature?
Saliva samples are stable at room temperature without any buffer or refrigeration required for storage or transport.
