    release:

    MIAMI, Fla., May 5 (Reuters) - Bio-engineering company
    Simplex Medical Systems Inc. said Tuesday it received
    regulatory approval to market its saliva collector in the
    U.S.

    The kit collects saliva for potential use in tests
    for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which can
    cause AIDS, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome,
    Simplex said. The company said the U.S. Food and Drug
    Administration approved the saliva collector, a key component of
    its rapid diagnostic HIV saliva test.

    ``Our
    unique proprietary design allows the user fool-proof
    saliva collection without ever having to come into
    contact with the saliva or worry about accuracy of the
    collector due to improper handling or measuring,'' said
    Simplex' president, Colin Jones, in a statement.
