The Rovers® Orcellex® Brush is a new and innovative instrument that allows for easy collection of cells from the oral epithelium. The collected cell material can be used for diagnostic and research applications as LBC and post PCR applications.
The shape and the dimensions of the new Rovers® Orcellex® brush make it possible to sample intra-epithelial locations where most dysplastic cells are found. The resulting samples are composed of cells that are representative of all layers of the oral epithelium (basal and parabasal cells, intermediate cells and superficial cells).
Laboratory tests have shown a high adequacy rate and high cellularity of the samples.
The Rovers® Orcellex® Brush is a non-invasive instrument; it has proven to be well accepted by patients and is easy to use.
It has been shown that the Rovers® Orcellex® Brush combined with the LBC technology can provide good samples that can be used either for diagnostic or research applications. The DNA extracted from the Rovers® Orcellex® Brush kits was of a satisfactory quality for post PCR applications used by the UK National Genetics Reference laboratory for the diagnosis of genetic diseases, such as Cystic Fibrosis family screening.
It offers a new non-invasive method of DNA collection. The technology is simple to use and provides good quality DNA.
