Vault COVID-19 tests are a saliva based at home PCR test kit.This test is appropriate for children old enough to participate in the saliva collection and follow directions (Typically over age three). You are responsible for bringing your sample to a UPS drop off. Every kit contains a prepaid UPS label for return shipping to the lab (Click here for UPSDrop off locations). If you drop your sample the same day as you collect it, you will typically receive results by email in 2-4 days.
When you open your test kit, you will find a card with instructions to follow. You will need an account with Vault and will be prompted to create one, if needed. There are step-by-step instructions, but here are a few key tips:
If your test kit is frozen, please let it thaw naturally at room temperature.
Please be sure that you have not had anything by mouth for 30 minutes prior to taking your test. (No eating, drinking, smoking, chewing gum, etc.)
Please make sure you fill the test tube to the line with saliva liquid - bubbles must be above the line.
Your test kit may or may not have blue liquid in the cap.
Make sure to completely screw the cap carefully onto the test tube with threads properly lined up.
