Description


This ground-breaking clinical tool assesses the oral microbiome – a key ecosystem in the gut-brain connection, and for cardiovascular and female reproductive health.

Using quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR), Oral EcologiX provides an accurate, reliable and quantifiable measurement of microbiota abundance.

The microbiota of the oral cavity exists as a complex biofilm that remains stable, despite environmental changes. However, dysbiosis, in form of infection, injury, dietary changes and risk-associated factors (e.g. smoking) may disrupt the biofilm community, favouring colonisation and invasion of pathogens.

Disruption of the biofilm community to a pathogenic profile, induces host immune responses, chronic inflammation and ultimately, the development of local and systemic disease, such as gingivitis, periodontitis, oral cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegeneration. However, much of this damage is reversible if pathogenic communities are reduced, and homeostasis is restored.
