OraStrip® QuickCheck Canine, for the detection and monitoring of active periodontal disease in dogs, is the company’s first commercial product. It launched in the US in January 2012 and in Canada in June 2013 and is widely available through standard veterinary distribution channels.
OraStrip, with its Thiol Detection Technology, detects periodontal infection beneath the gum line that can't be seen simply by looking in the mouth, as most of the tooth as supporting structures are beneath the gum line. Importantly, 83% of dogs with healthy looking mouths on traditional visual examination, were found to have periodontal disease. OraStrip has been shown to detect periodontal disease over 99% of the time.
