Major League Baseball (MLB) has named Spectrum Solutions LLC of Draper as a partner in its COVID-19 testing program for the 2020 season. Spectrum is supplying MLB and its clubs with its SDNA-1000 saliva collection kits for all player and staff testing.
The non-invasive saliva collection device has become a critical component of MLB’s COVID-19 health monitoring and testing plan and is serving as one of the key interlocking safeguards to help maintain the health and safety of MLB personnel, according to Jon Coyles, MLB vice president of drug, health and safety programs.
“We would like to thank Spectrum Solutions for playing such an integral role in Major League Baseball’s return to the field in 2020,” said Coyles. “We needed a safe, reliable and non-invasive way to regularly test and monitor players and club personnel this season. Spectrum has proven to be the best option available for our ongoing needs. We appreciate Spectrum’s support, collaboration and assistance during this challenging time.”
“The entire team here at Spectrum loves Major League Baseball and we couldn’t be prouder to be part of the solution in helping the league with its key testing needs,” said Bill Phillips, the company’s chief operating officer. “Easy- to-use, pain-free saliva collection for COVID-19 testing is an essential part of MLB’s health and safety protocols. Spectrum is happy our SDNA-1000 kits are serving to support MLB play this 2020 season.”
