Use the small cap to close the tube tightly.

Shake the capped tube for 5 seconds.

Discard or recycle the funnel.

Tips for improving saliva production:

Rub the cheeks. Make circular movements with your thumb and index finger.

Rub your tongue on the roof of the mouth.

Imagine a candy, lemon or your favorite food inside your mouth.

Repeat these steps until you have enough saliva in your mouth. You can then proceed with the salivary sampling according to the instructions in your kit.
