Last week at our DNA SIG, I was asked about how to get a DNA saliva sample from someone who cannot make that much saliva. If you are testing your elderly relatives, this can definitely be a problem.
I remembered a colleague discussing a process (thank you Randy Whited!) and so I went looking for the full instructions. I found an amateur-created YouTube video that gives good, quick instructions.
Check out this YouTube video describing the process.1
