May NOT detect species if mutatedIdentifies all microbes by percentage of the unique DNA found in the sample
Could miss dominant species within the infection6,500+ microbes identified in human tests to date




You can choose Saliva, or Saliva-Plus pocket sampling. In addition to saliva, we can process samples from deep in periodontal pockets. This will give you a more comprehensive diagnostic result versus saliva alone. Combine both collection methods in one bio-hazard bag and this will be run as one test.
