Test for determining the buffering capacity of saliva
CRT buffer establishes the protective action of saliva. The buffer systems contained in saliva are capable of neutralizing acids that can damage teeth. By determining the buffering capacity of saliva, you can establish how well the buffer system assumes this important job in each individual case. The caries risk test CRT buffer enables the buffering capacity of saliva to be quickly and efficiently determined.

Test for determining mutans streptococci and lactobacilli counts in saliva and plaque
High counts of mutans streptococci and/or lactobacilli indicate a high caries risk status. If protective factors cannot take effect, carious lesions will develop. CRT bacteria provide you with fundamental information before any changes in the tooth structure can be detected. As a result, you have the possibility of introducing adequate countermeasures at an early stage. The proven biological test CRT bacteria allows you to clearly identify and semi-quantitatively determine cariogenic bacteria.
