What is the BioComp Labs Biocompatibility Test?
The BioComp Labs Biocompatibility Test is a laboratory screening process used to help identify existing sensitivity problems to various chemical groups and families of compounds in an individual. After the test has been completed, your reactivity results are compiled in a report. This test is currently reporting on over 3,000 trade-named dental products and 94 chemical groups and families.
In modern society, contact is made every day with many substances- in the foods you eat, the products you use and the treatments you receive. Because everyone possesses a unique biochemistry, these substances effect everyone differently and to varying degrees. For some, the effects of certain substances (and their corrosion byproducts) can be toxic and hazardous, and may result in serious health problems. A substance which causes little or no reaction in one individual can prove harmful to another.
Since these effects vary, it is vital that these factors be considered when choosing dental and other materials for use in your body, especially when you have special or unique health concerns. The Biocompatibility Test provides Dr. Andow with extensive information about your individual sensitivities so that the best materials can be chosen and used in your treatment.
How do I order the test?
Dr. Andow wants to make this test readily available to anyone wishing to help identify any existing sensitivity problems. However, Dr. Andow does not have the capabilities to perform testing in his office. We have test kits which you take to Better Lab Tests Now.
