    DescriptionEarly detection of disease is a goal that many areas of medicine and dentistry strive for: it decreases the potential for poor outcomes for patients and limits costs associated with those for the health service. Often a biological marker – referred to as a biomarker – can detect disease in samples of blood, serum or plasma. This has been the gold standard for many years, decades even, however the sampling of other fluids such as saliva are desirable as they are non-invasive.
