Cancer Diagnostics

bioMérieux contributes to the management of cancer by providing a wide range of high-value tools for screening, diagnosis and monitoring of different cancer types.

To identify cancer at its earliest and more treatable stage, different types of cancer diagnostic tests are used to:

  • Screen an asymptomatic population for the early detection of cancer

  • Screen at-risk individuals

  • Diagnose a primary cancer and identify the cancer subtype

  • Predict prognosis and direct treatment

  • Monitor treatment efficacy and disease progression or recurrence

  • Earlier detection and treatment subsequently decreases cancer mortality.

Colorectal Cancer

Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is considered to be a relevant serum tumor marker for colorectal cancer. It is used in these situations:

  • Before surgery, since the result may complement pathologic staging and aid surgical treatment planning.
  • For monitoring response to treatment. A CEA measurement is recommended every 2-3 months for the first 2 years after initial diagnosis.
  • For post-operative monitoring, as an aid in early detection of recurrence of colorectal cancer. Again at 2-3 month intervals for the first 2 years after diagnosis.

Prostate Cancer

For prostate cancer, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is undoubtedly the best-known tumor marker and is used to:

  • Screen an asymptomatic population for the early detection of prostate cancer, in combination with digital rectal examination (DRE), although systematic screening of asymptomatic older men remains under debate
  • Aid diagnosis, in combination with DRE
  • Predict prognosis
  • Monitor men with prostate cancer
