About Getting Tested

  • Blood must be collected in a BD Vacutainer® K2EDTA Blood Collection Tube
  • The test does not require dietary or medication restrictions before blood is drawn.
  • Within a few days, you receive your patient’s test result.
  • Share the Epi proColon test results with your patient, and together, decide if there is any additional follow-up necessary.
  • Patients with positive Epi proColon test results should be referred for a diagnostic colonoscopy.
  • As with any new technology, reimbursement is not guaranteed.  Patients may incur out-of-pocket costs.
