Saliva is the most favored sample of choice in diagnosis due to ease of collection. Salivary biomolecules have provided an aperture in surveying a person’s health and well-being. Saliva contains a myriad of salivary proteins, which could serve as biological markers for diagnosing and tracking the progression of various health conditions, as well as monitoring the effectiveness of medication. Saliva collection devices allow a person to collect resting (unstimulated) saliva or stimulated saliva either via mechanical stimulation or acid stimulation.

Market Dynamics

Rising research activities for saliva collection devices is expected to boost growth of the saliva collection devices in the market. For instance, in July 2017, EquiSal Tapeworm saliva test was launched in the U.S. for detecting tapeworms from saliva of horses. EquiSal saliva collection kits are used for saliva collection, which comprises swabs to be kept in oral cavity of horses.

Furthermore, new marketing strategies by key players are expected to drive growth of the saliva collection devices market over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2018, Mayo Clinic and Helix’s lab launched a solution called, Mayo Clinic GeneGuide. It allows shipment of saliva collection kits to the individual within two days and furthermore, DNA is sequenced for identifying diseases.

Furthermore, in January 2015, DNA Genotek Inc., received USFDA approval for Oragene Dx intended for use in the non?invasive collection of saliva samples. DNA from the saliva sample is then isolated, stabilized, and legally marketed for DNA carrier screening genotyping tests.

Moreover, technological advancements for saliva collection of infants are also expected to increase growth of the saliva collection devices market. For instance, Oasis Diagnostics, developed Pedia SAL collection kit for infants. It allows saliva collection process with simplest design intended to not only collect saliva samples but also relax infants during procedure. Saliva can then be expressed from the collector using a compression tube directly into any of a variety of common laboratory vials.

Market Outlook

North America held the major share in the global saliva collection devices market during the forecast period, owing to increasing number of new and innovative product launches in the U.S. For instance, in June 2016, DNA Genotek launched saliva sample collection device ORAcollectDx, an alternative to buccal swabs. The device, ORAcollectDx, is part of saliva-based DNA collection and stabilization devices.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the global saliva collection devices market the forecast period, due to increasing awareness for safe and easy diagnosis of various diseases through number of symposiums and conferences organized in the region. For instance, in October 2016, Saliva Technology Application Research Symposium was held by Queensland University of Technology, in Australia.

Key players operating in the saliva collection devices market include Quest Diagnostics, Neogen Corporation, AboGen, Inc., OraSure Technologies, Inc., Oasis Diagnostics Corporation, Alere, Porex Corporation., and Salimetrics, LLC.
