PDx BioTech, formerly Alt BioScience and founded in 1997, is a privately-held diagnostics company with one primary goal: improving the quality of oral healthcare in humans and pets. To accomplish this goal, the company has created a family of point-of-care quickstrip testing and monitoring devices for use by dental care professionals, veterinary professionals, and consumers.
These easy-to-use, cost-effective devices will be instrumental in detecting and monitoring active periodontal disease, which has been linked to more severe systemic conditions, and other oral health conditions.
PDx BioTech’s flagship product, OraStripTM QuickCheck Canine, is the first detection and monitoring device for active periodontal disease in dogs. Other applications under development include products for professional use in humans and cats, and home-use monitoring applications for people, dogs and cats.
