Engineered to Lead the Saliva Collection Market in Molecular Diagnostic Applications

With over 20 million collection devices manufactured and distributed worldwide this innovative and technically-superior biosample collection device has been engineered to reduce self-collection error, is 100% bacteriostatic, and consistently delivers the highest quality, protected and preserved, saliva samples for testing.

Spectrum’s patented blue preservation chemistry preserves and protects both DNA and viral RNA samples during transport delivering a 100% inactivation of the live virus at ambient temperatures. In addition, suspending and stabilizing sensitive and specific RNA transcripts for transport up to 14 days.

The SDNA-1000’s intuitive design and minimal steps are a welcomed answer for those offering direct-to-patient diagnostic testing or any team that may have experienced clinical study or project failures due to sample self-collection errors of the past.

The SDNA saliva collection device additionally offers long-term stability and ships with verified, unique barcode serialization for biosample physical and digital chain-of-custody. Customized packaging, kitting, and fulfillment options are available to integrate and solve any special project or testing workflow requirements.

Choosing the wrong saliva collection device can introduce and increase critical failure points. The technically superior SDNA-1000 saliva collection device is the product evolution your teams and projects have been waiting for.

The first saliva collection device to be authorized for COVID-19 testing, the SDNA-1000 was shown to be a robust source of viral RNA and proven to deliver a more accurate and sensitive testing sample when compared to traditional swabbing.

More Sensitive and Accurate COVID-19 Testing Using Saliva

The SDNA-1000 is the first saliva collection device FDA authorized for SARS CoV-2 coronavirus testing and analysis. A recent study performed by Rutgers’s University compared swab biosamples to saliva collected using Spectrum’s SDNA-1000 whole saliva collection device in an effort to determine the viability of saliva as a matrix to detect COVID-19 and deliver an entirely new testing solution. Results were found to be 100% equal. Additionally, research performed by Yale University concluded that saliva also yielded greater sensitivity and consistency throughout the course of infection.

The patented Spectrum blue preservation chemistry was the main focus of the groundbreaking RUDCR study to evaluate its influence specifically on viral RNA preservation. Saliva samples collected and preserved with the Spectrum device proved to not only be a robust source of viral RNA but additionally showed to inactivate the virus while suspending and stabilizing the RNA transcripts for analysis.

Expansion of the FDA’s EUA authorization to include at-home self-collected saliva samples was granted based on the SDNA-1000’s demonstrated ability to protect COVID-19 transcripts during transport to CLIA testing labs for over 10 days in extreme temperatures.
