Saliva testing is a painless, convenient, inexpensive, and above all, an accurate means of testing steroid hormones.

Hormones in saliva are exceptionally stable and can be stored at room temperature for up to a week without affecting the accuracy of the result. This offers maximum flexibility in sample collection and shipment.

- Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
- Luteinizing hormone (LSH)

Depending on what is needed, we offer complete or individual hormone tests for diagnostic assessment.
