The IvyGene Colorectal Test will be available in 2019. The IvyGene Colorectal technology was presented at the SITC-ASCO in March 2019.
The Colorectal Test will provide patients who may be unable or unwilling to perform a colonoscopy more information about their health at the time of testing.
The IvyGene technology analyzes methylation ratios at specific gene targets in cell-free DNA. By identifying which gene targets are consistently hyper-methylated when cancer is present, the IvyGene technology is a highly accurate way to confirm the presence of colon cancer.
Only a medical provider may order the test. The test is performed through a simple blood draw [40mls]. Shipping is included in the wholesale price of the test. Results are returned within 5 business days.
