VALDOSTA, Ga., Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Salvus LLC, part of the CJB family of companies, expects to take delivery on its first commercial pathogen and chemical contamination detection devices in December and anticipates clinical and market/demo trials to commence in early 2022.

"Global semiconductor supply chain challenges have delayed device deliveries by three to four months. We are eager for December deliveries and the commercialization phase for the Salvus technology," said Clinton Beeland, president and CEO of Salvus. "The unique sensitivity and flexibility of the Salvus analyzer and its cartridge system will bring tremendous detection capabilities to multiple industries."

Earlier this year, Salvus announced plans to commercialize a novel interferometric platform that provides highly accurate detection of contaminants or pathogens in many industries. Applicable in human and animal health, agriculture, water quality management, food processing and the chemical and transportation industries, Salvus detection technology features handheld detection in minutes with extreme specificity and at parts per billion accuracies in many applications.

The platform is proven to detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, with sensitivity and specificity comparable to molecular tests, as well as dozens of other potentially dangerous pathogens and chemical contaminants.

The Salvus detection system consists of a lightweight, handheld analyzer and a disposable cartridge – both patent pending – that is adaptable to many point-of-care and on-site uses ranging from airports and health care facilities to water containments, farm fields, food processing sites and animal enclosures.
