InflammaDry®

InflammaDry® is a disposable, low cost test that requires no additional equipment to administer or interpret results. Using four simple steps, InflammaDry® test results are achieved in just 10 minutes, aiding in the diagnosis of dry eye before the patient leaves the office.

Product Features

InflammaDry® is the first and only, rapid, in-office test that detects MMP-9, an inflammatory marker that is consistently elevated in the tears of patients with dry eye disease.1 Other dry eye tests only measure tear production and stability. InflammaDry accurately identifies patients with dry eye allowing for optimal treatment methods and better quality of life.

Using direct sampling microfiltration technology, InflammaDry® accurately identifies elevated levels of MMP-9 protein in tear fluid samples taken from the inside lining of the lower eyelid, the palpebral conjunctiva.
