Saliva Collection Devices Diagnostics Market Share

ID: MRFR//1882-CR | 104 Pages | Author: Rahul Gotadki| February 2021

Collecting DNA through saliva is a more affordable option for genetic research compared to other methods like blood and urine tests. According to the CRN Pharmacovigilance Project, the cost of a saliva collection kit from Oragene is approximately USD 20, while a blood collection kit can cost nearly USD 100. However, DNA Genotek states that saliva collection is 48% less expensive than blood collection. One significant factor contributing to the cost-effectiveness of saliva tests is that there is no need for transportation and storage of saliva samples from the collection point to processing. In contrast, blood samples necessitate dry ice, overnight shipping, and freezers. Saliva samples can be conveniently stored at room temperature and transported using regular methods. This streamlined process reduces the overall cost associated with saliva collection, making it a more economical choice compared to blood collection. This cost advantage is a key driver behind the growing popularity of saliva-based genetic testing in the market.

The financial disparity between saliva and blood collection methods underscores the importance of considering not just the test itself but the associated logistics and expenses. By eliminating the need for special handling and storage requirements, saliva collection emerges as a more accessible and budget-friendly option for individuals and researchers alike. Beyond the cost savings, the convenience of saliva collection contributes significantly to its widespread adoption. Traditional blood collection involves intricate procedures, the use of dry ice, and reliance on specialized shipping methods. In contrast, saliva samples can be effortlessly collected and stored without the need for complex logistics. This simplicity not only reduces costs but also makes the entire process more user-friendly, encouraging more people to participate in genetic research studies.

Furthermore, the ease of storage and transport for saliva samples enhances the scalability of genetic research projects. Researchers can efficiently collect and process a larger volume of samples without the logistical challenges associated with blood samples. This scalability is particularly advantageous in large-scale genetic studies and population-based research, where a higher number of participants can significantly improve the robustness and reliability of the findings.
