Spectrum Solutions has been awarded the prestigious Best of State® award in the Science & Technology category for Medical Innovation.

Best of State is the gold standard of awards in the state of Utah recognizing outstanding individuals and businesses who achieve excellence in their field. Spectrum received this honor for its SDNA-1000 Saliva Collection Device.

“At Spectrum Solutions, our focus is on creating forward-looking and scalable end-to-end solutions for applications such as clinical diagnostics and commercialized product plans,” said Bill Phillips, Chief Operations Officer for Spectrum Solutions. “Our SDNA-1000 was born out of this innovative environment and since its launch, it has had a global impact not only on testing for COVID-19 but also on how saliva can be used for testing of cancer, viruses, and numerous other diseases and medical conditions. We are very grateful to have this Utah innovation be recognized and set apart with a Best of State award.”

Spectrum Solutions was the first to receive FDA authorization and introduce a nation, in the COVID-19 crisis, to a revolutionary “spit test” solution that not only challenged an entire industry’s standard diagnostic testing protocols, but pioneered a global industry shift favoring a safer, pain-free, and noninvasive bio-sample collection approach presenting an altogether better testing biomaterial. Facing a prolonged pandemic shut down, Spectrum has been praised for its “innovation under pressure”, credited for delivering professional sports such as Major League Baseball back to the game, and recognized for its pivotal at-home testing contribution including direct-to-patient delivery and sample self-collection.

The Best of State Awards were created in 2003 to recognize exceptional individuals, organizations, and businesses in Utah. Best of State candidates are evaluated by a panel of 100 judges based on three criteria: achievement in the field of endeavor; innovation or creativity in approaches, techniques, methods, or processes; and contribution to improving the quality of life in Utah.

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. 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
