PreBiomics provides an innovative kit for oral microbiome analysis to support dentists in the prevention, diagnosis and cure of oral diseases.
We combine state of the art metagenomics technologies, artificial intelligence and innovative computational techniques, enabling the analysis of the oral microbial population (microbiome) at the highest resolution level and paving the way to new potential clinical scenarios for oral diseases.
HOW THE KIT WORKS?
We supply dental clinics with an easy-to-use sampling kit for plaque collection.
Once collected, the sample is sent to our lab for analysis.
Within few weeks, we provide a detailed report with information on the microbiome composition and other valuable information that the clinician could use to gain insight into the oral health status of the patient
Oral diseases are a severe worldwide health issues that affect more than 80% of the global population and cost hundreds of billions per year. Our main focus are peri-implant diseases that seriously affect up to a fifth of all the 20 millions of dental implants inserted every year.
The oral microbiome is a key component in the development of these diseases and there is a need to fully understand which is its role.
HOW WE CAN HELP
In PreBiomics we believe in satisfy the dental market needs since for some oral diseases currently approved treatments and diagnostic tests have shown limited efficacy.
With our service we aim to help dentists in the early detection of oral diseases and in fine-tune therapeutic strategies for each patient based on his personal oral microbiome.
