Rapid test for detecting colorectal and other gastrointestinal tumors for all medical services
The ScheBo® • M2-PK Quick™ stool test is a visual immunochromatographic rapid test for detecting M2-PK in stool samples. It is an in-vitro diagnostic test exclusively for professional use. The test is used for colorectal cancer screening and indicates colorectal polyps, colorectal cancer, acute and chronic inflammatory bowel disease and other diseases of the digestive tract. The test result is not affected by any foods, so no dietary restrictions are necessary before taking the stool sample. It does not measure blood in the stool but instead it recognizes the enzyme M2-PK (M2-pyruvate kinase).
The ScheBo® • M2-PK Quick™ stool test can detect bleeding and non-bleeding colorectal polyps and tumors. M2-PKQuick™ has 94% sensitivity and 96% specificity when compared with the M2-PK ELISA.
The new rapid test is available since October 2007 and can be used by all physicians in private practise and hospitals. With the ScheBo® • M2-PK Quick™ stool test the stool samples can be analysed in only a few minutes for the enzyme M2-PK.
