ColoAlert® Plus Colorectal Cancer Detection Test
The Colorectal Cancer Screening Test that takes a closer look.
ColoAlert detects bleeding and non-bleeding tumours through tumour DNA analysis and thus offers a better early detection than fecal occult blood tests. 3,4
Tumour DNA analyses can distinguish colorectal cancer patients from healthy individuals more accurately than any other stool test and allow earlier diagnoses - all that in a simple at-home stool test!

What's special about ColoAlert?
Next generation colorectal cancer screening
Colorectal cancer can be cured if detected early. Therefore, the ColoAlert stool test was developed to detect changes in the bowel as accurately and early as possible. By analysing tumour DNA, ColoAlert detects 85 % of colorectal cancer cases and often in very early stages of the disease.3,4,5

How does ColoAlert work?
Early detection of colorectal cancer through tumour DNA analysis
Colorectal cancer originates from the genetic mutation of intestinal cells. These are continuously excreted through the stool and can be examined for tumour DNA using modern genetic diagnostic methods. ColoAlert analyses samples for the following tumour makers:
- total amount of human DNA
- occult blood
These tumour markers can be associated with the occurrence of cancer.
How precise is ColoAlert?
Clinical studies confirm the advantages of tumour DNA analysis
In a multicentric study, a total of 566 patients were examined simultaneously using the occult blood test, M2-PK test and ColoAlert. All methods were also compared with the colonoscopy.
With a sensitivity of 85% and a specificity of 92%, ColoAlert showed the most accurate test results among the non-invasive screening methods.
