How you collect saliva makes a big diagnostic difference. To incorporate the use of saliva into COVID-19 diagnostic testing protocols or implement actual real-world mass-testing in scalable scenarios requires an authorized, proven, validated, and supported system that actually mitigates risk of exposure and a device engineered to increase testing accuracy.
A validated and authorized process saves time and money. The SDNA saliva collection system has been engineered to lead the saliva collection market in molecular diagnostic applications. This self-contained saliva collection system provides critical sample consistency while suspending and neutralizing viral RNA transcripts post collection for sensitive and specific analysis completely inactivating the live virus at ambient temperatures.
Spectrum’s CV3 patented blue preservation chemistry is 100% bacteriostatic, preserves both DNA and viral RNA transcripts, and offers over 10 days of post-collection stability with no degradation in sample efficacy. The SDNA saliva collection kit ships with verified, unique barcode serialization for biosample physical and digital chain-of-custody. Additionally, customized packaging, kitting, and fulfillment options are available to solve any special project or testing workflow requirements.
Choosing the wrong saliva collection device can introduce and increase critical failure points. As the first saliva collection device to be authorized for COVID-19 testing, the SDNA-1000 mitigates any risk of infection throughout the testing process and doesn’t require any special UN3373 designation for USPS, FedEx, or UPS sample shipping.
