1 – Cologuard®

Perhaps the most well-known product from Exact Sciences, Cologuard is a non-invasive, FDA-approved colorectal cancer screening test designed for individuals aged 45 and older at average risk for colorectal cancer. It analyzes stool DNA and blood markers to detect certain DNA mutations and blood components that could indicate the presence of colorectal cancer or its precursors. Its convenience and non-invasiveness have made it a popular choice for colorectal cancer screening.


2 – Oncotype DX®

This is a group of clinically validated genomic tests that analyze the genetics of a patient’s cancer to predict treatment benefits and outcomes. It’s particularly used in breast, colon, and prostate cancers, helping doctors and patients make more informed decisions about treatment, and potentially sparing patients from unnecessary chemotherapy.
