Dr Anne Wyllie PhD aka “The Spit Queen” a Microbiologist and Research Scientist at the Department of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at the Yale School of Public Health at Yale University in the USA is interviewed about the SalivaDirect PCR COVID-19 testing protocol that she developed.

We look at why testing is such an important tool to reduce our risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection and how it forms part of the 360 degree solution to pandemic control. We talk about the safety, affordability, sensitivity, adaptability, flexibility and quick turnaround time of SalivaDirect and look at how it can be used to test other pathogens in the future.
