OralChroma differentiates each of the three major components of oral malodor rather than simply measuring overall breath level. This allows dental professionals to gain insights into factors affecting patient’s breath, enabling a treatment plan based on evidence.

With OralChroma, patients breathe into a disposable syringe that is used to inject the breath sample into an inlet port of the device. The breath analysis process begins automatically, and the Data Manager Software displays the three VSC readings and judgment against threshold value on a USB-connected computer screen in just four minutes

OralChroma’s Data Manager Software also allows easy storage and management of an unlimited amount of patient data, thus enabling the visualization of treatment progress and status in chronological order.
