Founded in 2010, SalivaBio is an industry newcomer with deep roots in salivary bioscience, matched with strong device manufacturing and engineering know-how. As the list of analytes available in saliva expands, SalivaBio has been working to create solutions for easy, accurate, and consistent saliva collection in the field. SalivaBio’s first collection device was designed in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University. In a short time, The Saliva Collection Aid has revolutionized how saliva is collected in professional research and medical environments.
New and innovative applications in salivary bioscience are creating additional requirements for saliva collection, handling, and storage. Salimetrics is partnering with SalivaBio to address these needs and bring new products into the industry.
This new partnership means that Salimetrics current suite of collection supplies will be marketed under the SalivaBio label, exclusively through Salimetrics. The new packaging will begin during the first quarter of 2014. No changes will be made to the Salimetrics collection devices, other than external packaging and labeling. The partnership also means that Salimetrics will soon be distributing a new line of next generation SalivaBio collection, handling, and storage devices.
With SalivaBio focusing on the design, manufacturing and packaging of saliva collection tools, the partnership will enable the Salimetrics’ team at its new technology center in Carlsbad, California to focus on developing the next suite of assay kits that will expand the potential of salivary bioscience.
The partnership is a win for Salimetrics customers and a win for salivary bioscience. Salimetrics customers will now have increased accessibility and more options at their finger tips to meet the additional demands of the next generation of innovative applications that involve salivary bioscience.
