Researchers at Boston IVF Develop Saliva Test to Replace Blood Test
Boston IVF is home of the first test tube baby in New England and, Tuesday, the fertility center announced another first. Researchers there have developed a saliva test to replace the daily blood tests doctors use to monitor patients' hormone levels. Women can now spit into a container, seal it and drop it off to be analyzed at Boston IVF's Waltham center and soon their other centers around New England. The fertility center is also trying to sell the test commercially, hoping to roll it out nationwide by the end of the year.
