Vancouver, BC, April 29, 09 – Perceptronix Medical Inc. Laboratories (PMI Labs) will be exhibiting at the Ontario Dental Association Annual Spring Meeting on April 30 - May 1, 2009 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. PMI Labs will be showcasing OralAdvance™, an informative new test for assessing the malignant potential of oral lesions at booth 544.
With recent advances in visualization techniques for the oral cavity, dentists are encountering more suspicious lesions. OralAdvanceT, 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 additional information about the pre-malignant or malignant nature of a lesion.
