Products that stand out in the lab
December 2016 Vol. 33, No. 10
Products are brought to our laboratories in two ways: 1.) Biomaterials - Dentists may request performance studies on products we are currently clinically evaluating and results are published in a clinical article. Translating the Science is a publication of THE DENTAL ADVISOR which explains the clinical relevance of laboratory testing. 2.) Microbiology - A specific hypothesis is proposed and tested using ISO and clinically relevant test methods, and a research report is prepared. Products can be compared and tested against standards or competitive products.
