“We look forward to having Bill Phillips of Spectrum Solutions join our Board of Governors and appreciate the knowledge and expertise he brings to the Chamber,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber. “Bill understands, like all Chamber members, that business leaders must be contributors and creators, not simply beneficiaries, of an economic ecosystem that builds community prosperity.”

“The Salt Lake Chamber is very progressive in its approach to helping develop, prosper and grow the technology, manufacturing, life sciences, professional services, retail, and other sectors that make up the Utah business community,” Phillips said. “I am thrilled to serve alongside other business and community leaders to help bolster, support, and further develop the business ecosystem in the Salt Lake Valley and throughout Utah.”

Phillips has received numerous national and local accolades and awards as founder and COO of Spectrum Solutions including being named a 2020 Utah Business Healthcare Hero and recipient of BioUtah’s 2020 Life Science Innovation Impact Award. In this past year, his visionary leadership was on full display as Spectrum took a global position in the battle against COVID-19 by offering the first FDA authorized saliva-based diagnostic alternative to the painful nasal swab-based testing. Phillips directed the company’s expansion to meet new, global demands, scaling up manufacturing capabilities and growing the company from 60 employees in January 2020 to more than 850 at the end of 2020. His visionary efforts launched a chain of events that led to several leading-edge scientific innovations and clinical tests that have vastly expanded the diagnostic options of saliva including early detection of lung cancer, new multi-viral testing to include COVID-19 as well as any mutations, Influenza A and B, and more with numerous other possibilities.

A statewide chamber of commerce with members in all 29 Utah counties, the Chamber represents the broad interests of the state’s 63,000- plus employers, which employ more than 1.4 million Utahns.

Slide Predict, Diagnose, & Prevent Saliva-Based Diagnostic Solutions #SpitMatters blank

Health is a dynamic state of wellbeing. Healthcare providers and researchers have long believed that changes in our saliva record our ongoing state-of-health story. This encrypted source of individual truth, and how to best use it, delivers us all a quicker path to informed decisions and treatments free of adverse reactions.

Interestingly, saliva acts as a wide resource of genomic information useful for identifying and monitoring in real-time a disease as well as its state of progression. Saliva analysis looks at the cellular level, the biologically active compounds, making it a true representative of what is clinically relevant.

Spectrum’s technically-superior saliva collection systems have not only been engineered to lead the saliva collection industry in molecular diagnostics and clinical research applications but deliver the safest, most robust biomaterial for the earliest detection and diagnosis of disease and infection.

  • Saliva provides the earliest path to critical detection and diagnosis
  • Saliva contains the entire library of proteins, hormones, antibodies, and other molecular compounds measured in routine blood tests
  • First EUA authorized saliva collection device for COVID-19 testing & authorized device for direct-to-patient at-home sample self-collection
  • Used in supervised & unsupervised sample collection LDT workflows of symptomatic & asymptomatic users
  • Pain-free, non-invasive, & safe – ideal for those needing frequent & repeat testing
  • In-device live virus inactivation at ambient temps (COVID-19 EUA validated data)
  • Eliminates hooded containment of samples arriving at the testing lab
  • No temperature-controlled storage or transport of collected saliva samples
  • Single device for DNA & viral RNA applications
  • Safest collection approach & most robust biomaterial for detecting COVID-19
  • Delivers 99.998% highest levels of testing accuracy & sensitivity
  • Formulation identifies infections at its earliest stage from as few as 200 copies/ml (lateral flow rapid tests need 10,000-20,000 copies/ml)
  • A single preserved saliva sample provides opportunity for multiple tests
  • Over two weeks of post-collection stability with no degradation in sample efficacy
  • System maintains critical bio-sample consistency
  • Mass-testing scalability & easy device integration using validated and supported processes
  • Mitigates any risk of infection throughout the testing process
  • Pinpoint life-cycle stage of active viral infection
  • Eliminates UN3373 shipping designation with clearance from USPS, FedEx, & UPS
  • Delivers the highest levels of testing accuracy using qualified extraction chemistries
