Summit Biolabs

The Saliva Diagnostics Expert

About Us

Summit Biolabs is harnessing the power of saliva-based diagnostics for COVID-19 and head & neck cancer.

An early-stage molecular diagnostics company, Summit Biolabs is pioneering early detection of head & neck cancer recurrence using a first of its kind saliva liquid-biopsy, HNKlear. HNKlear is a proprietary, non-invasive saliva test that provides more effective, more accurate, and earlier detection of head and neck cancer recurrence than traditional diagnostic methods. This novel approach has the potential to revolutionize head and neck cancer surveillance and improve patient outcomes.

Summit Biolabs is also leveraging its core competencies in saliva-based molecular diagnostics and viral nucleic acid detection to join the fight against COVID-19. Along with their clinical and laboratory partners, Summit Biolabs is developing the first comprehensive panel of highly-accurate saliva-based tests for COVID-19 infection, quantitation and immune response.
