Patient Testing with Epi proColon®
Your patient’s blood sample may be drawn at a draw site or laboratory designated by your patient’s healthcare plan.
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.
