Providing a saliva sample

If you have consented to providing a saliva sample, a saliva collection kit will be mailed to you by the GELLES research team. There is an instruction leaflet included within the kit.

You can watch a short instructional video or download a copy of the instructions below. The instruction leaflet can also be found in multiple languages on the DNA Genotek website.

Once you have provided your sample, following the instructions provided, please place the collection tube in the provided biohazard bag and mail your sample back to us, using the replied paid envelope provided.

If you have any questions about the saliva kit, or the genetic research, you can contact the Women’s Health Australia team (email: alswh@newcastle.edu.au; phone: 1800 068 081 [FREECALL]) or the Human Studies Unit at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, The University of Queensland (email: hsu-projects@uq.edu.au; phone 07 3346 2089).
