Faster & More Accurate Results

Improve Diagnostic Testing Performance with Porex Saliva Collection Media

The first step in an accurate diagnosis is sample collection. Porex saliva collection media offers an ideal capillary structure for controlled sample collection and delivery using our customized wicking and absorption properties. With proprietary color change and sufficiency-indicator technology, our collection media are optimized to enhance surface energy and recovery of analytes, reduce viscosity, and minimize non-specific binding and a comprehensive selection of material from a single-source manufacturer.

Proprietary coatings optimize Porex’s saliva collection media’s capability to reduce potential contamination by minimizing non-specific binding. Our custom wicking and absorption properties enable the safe collection, absorption, and release of the same to the membrane for many diagnostic tests including point-of-care tests, patient self-tests, drugs-of-abuse tests, and infectious disease tests among others.

How it works

Porex’s saliva collection media is made up of high-purity materials that improve sensitivity and specificity of testing results. Using a proprietary color changing technology, the saliva collector absorbs the sample until a sufficiency and saturation indicator become visible. Porex’s unique material structures allow the porous matrix to collect, transport, store, and release the sample upon demand – all in a single component.
