The Oral Panel Test identifies bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites in removed teeth, blood, tissue, implants, bone grafts or other biological samples. It tests for 88 different pathogens, including tetanus, botulism, diphtheria, HPV 16 and HPV 18, Candida albicans and more. Using PCR, one of the most advanced tools in molecular biology today, specificity of this test is one in a trillion or greater and the sensitivity of the test is the ability to detect the DNA of between 1 and 10 microbes.
DNA Connexions provides Oral Panel Test kits for collecting blood, tissue, teeth, root canals, cavitations, implants, bone grafts and paper points. Samples do not have to be orally based or obtained by a healthcare professional.
Below are 3 gels that represent 60 of the microbes we can identify by their DNA. The brightness of the band indicates a higher amount of the microbe's DNA that was present in the sample. This brightness gives an idea of how badly the patient is infected with a particular pathogen. The brightest bands represent an overwhelming infection process. The brightness of the band (amount of the microbe), the virulence of the microbe (how deadly it is), and other factors yields a pathogenicity value for each pathogen which indicates which microbe(s) should be targeted for therapy first . The general description, symptoms of infection and current CDC treatment recommendations are included in the report for each microbe.
