OraRisk® Candida identifies all common species of the yeast, Candida; which is known to cause oral thrush in patients with a normal or compromised immune system.
Candida species identification is key to treatment choice as some types of Candida are resistant to standard antifungal treatments. Candida species identified by this assay include: C.albicans, C.glabrata, C.krusei, C.parapsilosis, C.tropicalis, C.rugosa, C.guilliermondii/C.zeylanoides, C.kefyr, C.lusitaniae (up to 3 types may be reported).
All of our salivary diagnostic tests can be ordered from the same simple oral rinse collection.
