OralID uses a proven, optically based technology called, “fluorescence technology.” OralID’s fluorescence technology uses a blue light (435–460 nm) that allows a clinician to identify oral cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage, thus saving lives. The medical applications of fluorescence technology includes diagnosis of the GI tract, cervix, lung, skin and oral mucosa.
OralID is a battery-operated, hand-held oral examination light used as an adjunctive device for oral mucosal screening. The device emits a visible blue light (435–460 nm) that one shines directly into the oral cavity.
OralID is shipped with the necessary eyewear to use the device. Wearing the special OralID eyewear enhances the visual effects of the blue light during the oral exam. When the blue light from OralID shines on healthy oral tissue, it fluoresces green. However, when it shines on abnormal tissue, it appears dark due to a lack of fluorescence.
