Stool DNA Test

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the 3rd highest incidence worldwide and the 2nd most common cancer in Malaysia; with 65% detected at stage III and IV.

The Academy of Medicine of Malaysia recommends that Colorectal Cancer Screening should start at age 40. Screening allows early detection of CRC, increasing the 5-year survival rate significantly as the tumor growth is smaller and thus easier to treat.

COLOTECT™ is a non-invasive, highly sensitive screening test for colorectal cancer (CRC) and precancerous lesions. Human DNA is extracted from stool sample that is self-collected at home, and used for multiplex methylation specific PCR to detect abnormally methylated CRC marker genes – SDC2, ADHFE1, and PPP2R5C.
