Introducing Salvus Detection Technology

and the world’s first handheld chemical and biological interferometric detector. This groundbreaking device has the ability to rapidly identify contaminates or beneficial substances in liquid, air or surface environments. Backed by years of research and testing, Salvus has demonstrated fast and effective detection capabilities across numerous applications.

We Detect Your Concerns™




Qualitative and
Quantitative Reporting


Salvus™ is a lightweight, handheld and easy-to-use device that can simultaneously detect multiple targets, chemical or biological, providing fast and precise results within minutes. Each unit consists of an analyzer unit and a discreet, disposable cartridge for sample applications or a flow cartridge for monitoring applications.

Handheld Interferometric Detection Technology

  • Analyzer: 9.6″ x 4.25″ x 3.33″ – Hand Held
  • Weight: 2.24 lbs. including battery and cartridge
  • Chemical and Biological detection capable
  • Results in under 30 minutes – time from sample to answer
  • For antibody test, analysis time about 5 minutes
  • Broad assay menu (over 60 assays resulted in successful detection thus far)
  • Supports multiple sample types (blood, air, etc. …)
  • Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and USB connectivity with Cellular Option
  • GPS capable
  • Operational in outdoor environments (non-temperature/non-humidity controlled environments)
  • Powered via battery or universal AC

Discreet and Disposable Cartridge for Sample Applications
Flow Cartridge for Monitoring Applications

  • Both offer multiplex capabilities and rapid deployment for new chemical or biological targets

How It Works

Salvus can test a variety of sample types such as liquids and air using many sensitive materials as a receptor. The receptor may include antibody, antigen, aptamer, RNA, DNA or MIP. Cartridges are pre-configured and ready to use.

Here’s how Salvus Works:

  1. Waveguides are embedded on the cartridge substrate.
  2. Bioreceptors or chemically sensitive materials are coated onto the waveguide.
  3. A laser illuminates the waveguide creating an evanescent field that encompasses the sensing coating.
  4. The test sample is introduced.
  5. Binding of the bioreceptor and the target affects the effective index of refraction of the waveguide.
  6. The index of refraction is measured and reported. Speed, sensitivity, specificity and quantitative reporting are hallmarks of the Salvus technology.
