ColoVantage® Blood Test - More Information

The ColoVantage® test, also known as a ColoVantage® blood test and a ColoVantage® lab test, checks the methylated Septin9 DNA blood level.

The ColoVantage® test is used to check for the presence of colorectal cancer using a blood test. Colorectal cancer has a high survival rate when diagnosed early. This blood test utilizes methylated septin 9, a biomarker that leverages the discovery that the molecule hypermethylated septin 9 is present in nearly all cancer specimens in people with colorectal cancer. While colonoscopy is the traditionally used screening test to check for colorectal cancer, it has a number or drawbacks related to cost, inconvenience and discomfort. As a result, for some people, the ColoVantage® test may be a more convenient screening alternative to colonoscopy. Demonstrating a sensitivity of 70% and specificity of 89%, the ColoVantage® test can be used for all stages of cancer.

To get a ColoVantage® test near you, simply order online and get tested at the Quest Diagnostics lab that you selected. Once your ColoVantage® lab results are ready, they will be available for download. As can be seen on the sample ColoVantage® lab report above, the methylated septin 9 level will be reported as negative if methylated septin 9 is not detected by the lab.

No special dietary restrictions are necessary before undergoing the ColoVantage® test. The ColoVantage® test cannot be used in isolation as absolute evidence of the presence or absence of a disease and all results should be evaluated in conjunction with a licensed medical provider. Please note that the ColoVantage® blood test was developed and its analytical performance characteristics have been determined by Quest Diagnostics and has not been cleared or approved by FDA.

This ColoVantage® test is frequently ordered with the CEA test.
