Identafi 3000 - Trimira Oral Cancer Screening
The Identafi 3000 is a small, cordless and afordable device that uses a three-wavelength optical illumination and visualization system to allow dental professionals to identify otherwise-invisible early cancers. This affordable device will aid in mouth, tongue, and lip cancer screening--enabling diagnosis of afflictions that have reached epidemic levels, due in part to the lack of effective, broad-based early detection systems for oral cancer screening.
Identafi 3000 uses white, violet, and amber wavelengths of light to excite oral tissue in distinct ways. Biochemical changes can be monitored with fluorescence, while morphological changes can be monitored with reflectance. This multiple wavelength technology identifies abnormal tissue with more accuracy than the single color approaches currently on the market, according to Trimira. The ability to read metabolic and physiologic differences makes it easier to distinguish between normal and abnormal tissue. The combined system of fluorescence and reflectance uses the body's natural tissue properties as an adjunctive tool for oral mucosal examination.
