Salivary hormone testing measures unbound, or free, hormone levels in the body, unlike serum based hormone testing. Salivary hormone testing accurately reflects the active and unbound hormones which are biologically available to their receptors in target tissues. Since its development, salivary hormone testing has been gaining popularity as a testing methodology in large part due to its simplicity and non-invasive method of collection. Further, the ease of sample collection allows for accurate timing to obtain samples at critical intervals throughout the day, yielding more accurate results than blood or serum testing. Since hormone levels may vary during the day or during the month, multiple saliva specimens can be collected, conveniently offering precise measurement. The inherent stability of salivary hormones also allows latitude in collection and shipment.
