Perceptronix Sponsors University of British Columbia Dentistry Research Day


1/26/2009 12:23:33 PM

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - January 26, 2009) - Perceptronix is proud to be a silver sponsor for the 2009 UBC Dentistry Research Day on January 27 with its focus on early detection of oral cancer. This event closely parallels the company's agenda in promoting early cancer diagnosis for better patient outcomes. Perceptronix will be showcasing and demonstrating the use of OralAdvance™, a new quantitative cytology test for the early detection of oral cancer.

With recent advances in visualization techniques for the oral cavity, dentists are encountering more suspicious lesions. OralAdvance™, with its soft cyto-brush sample collection kit, provides dentists with an informative new option for assessing these lesions when biopsy is not warranted or possible. It provides an objective measure of gross DNA abnormality that can give important information about the pre-malignant or malignant nature of a lesion.
