Forward Science™ Launches Liquid Cytology Test
Forward Science Technologies is the first American company to incorporate fluorescence technology and liquid-based cytology to enhance the oral health assessment.
Forward Science Technologies LLC, manufacturer of OralID™, the latest oral cancer screening device, announces the launch of CytID™, a liquid-based cytology method for sampling tissue highlighted by OralID. CytID incorporates technology from Resolution Biomedical, Inc., makers of ClearPrep, next generation liquid-based cytology.
"OralID users have been asking us to develop a test for suspicious tissue highlighted by the fluorescence technology,"
explained Dr. Brian Pikkula, president & CTO of Forward Science Technologies, "incorporating a high-quality liquid-based product enhances the entire screening process."
CytID is the first cytology product targeting oral cancer screening that can also facilitate HPV testing of suspicious samples. Further, collecting a cytology sample with CytID is less painful for the patient, simple for the clinician, and the result can provide peace of mind to patients - or early detection should harmful conditions exist.
"We have been testing ClearPrep for oral screening for some time," explained Michael Friedl, President & CEO of Resolution Biomedical. "Because of their depth of experience in the dental market, partnering with Forward Science Technologies has been a natural fit for us. We have high hopes for CytID."
