PCR testing where and when it is needed for real-time decision
making.

High-performance PCR

FDA authorized* point-of-care technology captures
intact virus, an important
indicator of infection.

Authorized for emergency use by the FDA under an EUA for use by authorized laboratories or under a CIA waiver.

Saliva-based PCR tests are ideal for congregate work settings

  • Companies requiring employees to come back into the physical office.
  • Remote mining operations where PCR testing is not readily available.
  • Manufacturing facilities where physical distancing is not possible and avoiding downtime is critical.
  • Sports tournaments where players come in close contact over the course of a few days.

Why Saliva?

Painless sampling Eliminates the need for uncomfortable swab testing.

Self-collected samples Limits worker exposure, decreasing the risk of viral transmission..

Resistant to global supply chain shortages Does not require any additional materials to carry out a test. Proudly developed and manufactured in the United States.

Rapid and accurate COVID-19 RT-qPCR test result in 3 simple steps

1. Obtain saliva sample

2. Connect cup to cartridge

3. Insert and run test

“We see many patients who are anxious about nasal swabs so we are excited about the opportunity to offer saliva testing. If patients are comfortable providing the sample and quickly get their results, then they are more likely to be receptive to ongoing care and future testing.”
