How BeScreenedTM-CRC Works

BeScreened™-CRC tests for three blood-based proteins that are involved with colorectal cancer’s immunological activities involving the formation of tumors, tumor generation, and tumor invasion, progression and migration. Once the test is complete, results are reported as either Negative of Positive for the likely presence of CRC.  Patients who receive negative results are recommended to stay compliant with existing, patient specific screening guidance. Patients who receive positive results are recommended to follow-up with their physician for consult and to schedule a screening colonoscopy.

BeScreened™-CRC is not a test for colorectal cancer diagnosis; it is a screening test that aides in the detection of colorectal cancer and is not intended replace a colonoscopy.
