Israel Develops World’s First Saliva-based Pregnancy Test

Next year, a new type of pregnancy test—one that can tell if a woman is pregnant by analyzing her saliva—will be available in pharmacies and drug stores throughout Israel, Europe, the United Arab Emirates, and South Africa. This first-of-its-kind home pregnancy test was developed by Israeli start-up company, Salignostics, a Jerusalem-based biotech company, founded in 2016.
