How does PolypDx™ work? icon-plus-red

PolypDx™ measures small molecules (metabolites) in urine samples to detect the presence of polyps in the colon and rectum. These metabolites are the by-products of cellular metabolism and discarded in urine.

By indicating the likely presence or absence of an adenomatous polyp, PolypDx™ may help to provide more information about whether additional follow-up, such as a colonoscopy, should be considered.
