Oral Chroma


Oral Chroma

       The OralChroma™ is a portable gas chromatograph. The product is widely used in dental offices, university departments of dentistry and medical teaching institutions, environmental engineering companies, pharmaceutical companies, and milk/confectionary companies.

Offering equipment that contributes to the management of your dental office

       The OralChroma™ measures the volatile sulfur compounds (VSC) hydrogen sulfide, methyl mercaptan, and dimethyl sulfide-a major causative factor in halitosis-and displays each gas concentration. Measuring each component of VSC not only helps to identify the cause of halitosis, a major symptom of periodontal disease, and to check the efficacy of treatment, but also enables the patient to see the treatment processes and results. The product motivates patients to treat halitosis, eventually resulting in an increased number of patients.

High-performance and global quality standards

       The OralChroma™ is a portable gas chromatograph offering lower cost, higher performance, and more user-friendly operations than conventional gas chromatographs by limiting the target gases to three types.

       With the OralChroma™ , a semiconductor gas sensor eliminates the need for a carrier gas, required for conventional gas chromatographs, and drastically abridges the standby time to about 30 minutes from the several hours to several days for previous models. In addition, since the semiconductor gas sensor is supersensitive to gas components, it is not necessary to use a conventional gas concentrator or other complicated apparatuses.

       In addition to the previously described basic principles, the system configuration is dedicated for halitosis measurements and the use of major modular components enables accurate measurements without the need for special expertise or skills unlike conventional gas chromatographs.

       The OralChroma™ conforms to global quality standards. CUL Standards are proof of the safety of electronic products in North America (the U.S.A. and Canada), and the product is listed in the “CUL Listed Laboratory Equipment 3EW3.”
