How you collect saliva makes a big diagnostic difference. Choosing the wrong saliva collection device can introduce and increase critical failure points.
To incorporate the use of saliva into molecular diagnostic testing protocols or implement actual real-world mass-testing in scalable scenarios requires a studied, proven, validated, and supported system that actually mitigates the risk of exposure and a device engineered to increase test precision, sensitivity, and assay reproducibility.
The SDNA saliva collection devices are setting new standards of care in testing, managing, and treating disease. Devices have been engineered to modernize care and lead the testing market in clinical diagnostic and research applications. This self-contained saliva collection system provides critical sample consistency while amplifying, preserving, and protecting transcripts at the point of collection for highly sensitive and highly specific analysis. In addition, the patented chemistry maintains the highest sample efficacy with months of post-collection stability for the easy integration or development of new diagnostics-as-a-service (DaaS) at-home testing solutions.
Sample self-collection using an SDNA collection kit provides 100% in-device live viral neutralization at room temperature, mitigating any risk of exposure for downstream processes. The SDNA kits have no special storage or transport temperature-control requirements for collected saliva samples and eliminate the need for UN3373 biohazard shipping designation with clearance from USPS, FedEx, & UPS.
Spectrum’s saliva collection systems ship with verified, unique barcode serialization for biosample digital chain-of-custody. Additionally, customized secondary packaging, clinical kitting, and direct-to-patient 3PL fulfillment options are available to solve any special project or testing workflow requirements.
