Why do researchers consider Salimetrics salivary assay kits the standard of comparison? They offer the most reliable, repeatable and accurate results in saliva, because they are focused on science driven by rigorous, uncompromising testing.

Saliva is their specialty. No modified blood or urine assays here—Salimetrics assays are designed specifically for salivary testing by pioneers in salivary bioscience, and are now recognised globally as the standard in saliva testing.

Choose Salimetrics. Your research is too important to settle for anything less.
