SaliMark™ OSCC saliva test kits consist of two components:
1.The sample collection kit
2.The lab assay
The salivary sample collection kit is used to collect the specimen in the clinical office setting. The sample will be sent via pre-paid overnight service to the scientific testing lab where a specific lab assay will be performed. The test results will be made available to the clinician, electronically consistent with HIPPA compliant protocols within two days.
The lab assay tests for elevation of certain combinations of biomarkers present in the saliva, which are consistent with an increased risk for the presence of oral cancer. Based on the lab results a risk probability determination will be provided in a report to the clinician for patient follow-up
