What?

Why?

Affordable

What price are you comfortable with for you and your patients?

The HR5 test detects the 5 highest-risk bacteria, keeping the cost affordable by focusing only on the bacteria scientific literature has defined as the primary drivers of periodontal disease. 

Fast turnaround times

A faster turnaround allows you to know your patient's infection status quicker, and treat them accordingly.

Receiving the results of the HR5 test in just 2 business days allows you to create treatment plans sooner, enabling you to reach your desired treatment endpoint faster.

Sensitivity

A more sensitive saliva test reduces the potential for false negative results.

With a limit of detection of 100 and 10, the HR5 test allows for earlier intervention, giving you the ability to predict and prevent infection and alveolar bone loss.

Number of Targets

What targets (bacteria, yeast, viruses, or inflammatory markers) are important to your practice and patients? How will you use this information in to create targeted treatment plans?

Scientific literature confirms 5 key bacterial species are primary drivers of periodontal disease: Aa, Pg, Td, Tf, and Fn. Therefore, our focus in testing with HR5 is to quantify these key bacterial pathogens. 

Absolute quantification

Through absolute quantification, you can precisely track progress over time and see the exact decrease or increase of pathogens.

The HR5 test provides the exact quantity of each pathogen detected. Results are presented in Scientific Notation using coefficients and exponents: x.y x 10z

qPCR

Some testing systems are designed more for research than clinical accuracy, while our systems are designed for more accuracy in clinical decision making. What is important for your practice? Quantitative DNA-PCR (qPCR) systems are the gold standard for accuracy in modern technology.

Quantitative DNA-PCR (qPCR) systems are the gold standard for clinical accuracy in modern technology. The HR5 test uses Quantitative DNA-PCR.

Covers all known subspecies of bacterial targets

A saliva test that detects all known subspecies reduces the potential for false negative results.

The HR5 test tests for all known subspecies of the 5 high-risk pathogens, allowing you to make confident diagnoses and treatment decisions, while reducing the potential for false negative results.

Clinical and Business Support for Testing Implementation and Success

Expert guidance on implementing salivary diagnostics can help make the process more successful and efficient, thereby increasing the success of periodontal protocols and patient health.
