PCR Saliva Testing for Fast,  Accurate SARS‑CoV‑2 Results

The Right Test at the Right Place at the Right Time


The FDA's First Point of Care PCR-Based Saliva Test for COVID-19 Detection  |  Results in Minutes

Non-Invasive  |  Portable  |  Captures Whole Virus  |  Easy as 1,2,3 

MicroGEM’s Sal6830 Point of Care PCR System provides the first-of-its-kind PCR-based saliva test for fast, simple, on-the-spot detection of COVID-19 infection not possible until now.

  • Saliva samples are non-invasive, making them more comfortable and easier than nasal swabs.
  • Easy to use in workplaces and portable for on-the-spot testing.
  • Simple workflow and on-screen instructions for results in under 30 minutes. 
  • Proprietary point-of-care technology captures intact virus, an important indicator of infection.

This test is authorized for use at the Point of Care (POC), i.e., in patient care settings operating under a CLIA Certificate of Waiver, Certificate of Compliance, or Certificate of Accreditation.

Why Saliva?

Sal6830 SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Test


Painless Sampling

  • Eliminate the need for uncomfortable swab testing.
  • A quick and painless sampling method that increases testing compliance among subjects of all ages.
  • Ideal for testing children or individuals who are uneasy with getting swabbed or find swab sampling uncomfortable.

Self-collected Samples

  • Reduces the workload for healthcare workers
  • Limits healthcare worker exposure, therefore decreasing the risk of viral transmission to other healthcare workers.

Resistant to Global Supply Shortages

  • Does not require any additional materials to carry out a test. Simply “pool and flow” saliva into the Saliva Collection Cup (provided with the test) and screw on the cap. Done.

Tough on Variants

  • The MicroGEM Sal6830 SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Test has been clinically validated during both Delta and Omicron waves.

Why Sal6830?

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. The MicroGEM Sal6830 SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Test is also a nice fit for our mobile labs with a  workflow easily administered by our staff, giving us the ability to provide care to patients within minutes of results.

The Health Wagon

The Sal6830 Point of Care PCR System uses on-the-spot RT-PCR to quickly detect intact virus using easy-to-collect saliva samples, allowing fast decision-making about a person’s possible infectivity.

It means quicker decisions to help people resume normal activities if they test negative, or isolate and get care if they test positive.

It means contact tracing for positive people can begin immediately, not days later.

It means healthcare professionals can put often limited resources to work where they are most needed.

Saliva Testing
When and Where It’s Needed

In today's 'new normal',  where activities are resuming among vaccinated and unvaccinated people, testing can help relieve the burden and anxiety about who is sick and infectious.

The Sal6830 SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Test: a game-changing addition to COVID-19 testing in our communities.

Testing remains a key strategy to end this pandemic.

  • Point-of-care tests are done in the presence of the patient so there is no downtime while waiting for a lab to process the result.  In the case of Covid-19, this means a person either immediately gets treatment or can get on with their lives.
  • Sal6830 saliva-based RT-PCR testing can help identify COVID-19 cases in a matter of minutes -- with the confidence of a molecular test and the speed of an antigen test.
  • The innovative design of the Sal6830 SARS-CoV-2 Saliva Test targets both the E and N genes on SARS-CoV-2, reducing the risk of current and future variants affecting the efficacy of the test. 

While we are optimistic that the COVID-19 pandemic will subside, we remain committed to ensuring that people have access to high-quality COVID-19 RT-PCR tests with quick results. Our Sal6830 Point of Care PCR System is a fast, innovative solution for today and the future.
