  1. Find a comfortable area to conduct the test safely (at least 30 mins). Parking fee (if any) will be collected.

Internet is needed by the biker, if data is weak in your area, the biker might request to connect to your wifi.
  2. No mouth activity for 30 mins prior saliva collection. No brushing, drinking, eating, smoking, putting lipstick, etc. Specimens should be clear & non viscous. No discoloration, blood, food debris, phlegm or any impurities. Fill at least half of the tube. Otherwise the result may be INVALID.
