About ColoAlert
ColoAlert detects colorectal cancer (CRC) through a simple examination with high sensitivity and specificity, such as invasive colonoscopy *. The test uses proprietary methods to analyze cellular DNA for specific tumor markers related to the fecal immunochemical test (FIT). The test is designed to detect tumor DNA and CRC in the early stages. The product is CE-IVD marked (meets EU safety, health and environmental requirements) and changes to IVDR compliance. This product is marketed in several countries of the European Union. Mainz Biomed currently distributes ColoAlert through a number of clinical partners.

About colorectal cancer
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most deadly cancer in the United States and Europe, but the most preventable with early detection provides a survival rate of over 90%. The cost of annual testing per patient is minimal, especially compared to the final stage of CRC treatment which costs patients an average of $ 38,469 per year. The American Cancer Society estimates that by 2021 there will be approximately 149,500 new cases of colon and rectal cancer in the United States, resulting in 52,980 deaths. Recent FDA rulings suggest that stool DNA screening, like ColoAlert, should be performed once every three years in the United States, starting at age 45. Currently, there are 112 million Americans aged 50 and over, with a total expected to rise to 157 million in 10 years. Properly examining this 50+ population living in the United States every three years, as determined, equals about $ 3.7 billion in U.S. market opportunities each year.
