Benefits of Saliva-Based PCR Testing Using the SDNA-1000

It’s the early & accurate detection of COVID-19 infections – Critical to reducing the asymptomatic and pre-Symptomatic spread

Testing using Spectrum’s saliva collection devices is:

  1. Able to accurately detect the presence of COVID-19 days before symptoms appear (benefit of the extraction and amplification process using our patented preservation chemistryr
  2. Highly sensitive RNA testing (limit of detection of ∼10 3 copies/mL) detects the SARS-CoV-2 virus in saliva 1.5 to 4.5 days before the viral load in the paired nasal-swab sample(1)
  3. Our highly sensitive formulation detects an infection from saliva samples measuring as low as 200 copies/ml (compared to rapid antigen lateral flow tests requiring a minimum of 10,000-20,000 copies/ml – get the facts) neat or raw saliva virtually eliminates this early detection window from skipping the extraction and amplification process having fewer detectable copies.

 Device FDA Authorization For UNSUPERVISED Bio-Sample Collection

Spectrum Secures Device EUA for COVID-19 Testing

Marking the first device-specific EUA for Spectrum, new FDA authorization expands access and availability for saliva-based COVID-19 testing options. Validation of Spectrum’s SDNA-1000 provides authorized COVID-19 testing labs an easy integration path with no additional saliva-testing FDA requirements. Unique device factors in this consideration were the SDNA-1000’s exclusive ability to inactivate the live virus after the pain-free self-collection of saliva samples while preserving and stabilizing viral RNA transcripts over 10 days with no degradation of sample efficacy.
