SalivaDirect™ has moved!
For information regarding SalivaDirect™, including lab designation and up-to-date validation results, please visit our new page at https://publichealth.yale.edu/salivadirect/.
COVIDTrackerCT will remain home to our surveillance, open-source protocols, and research (including test development).
We made our own transcript standards, which we use to determine the limit of detection and as a positive control. The protocol can be found here →
