What does ColoAlert® test for?
Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) detects hidden blood in the stool which may indicate bowel cancer and can also be from more benign causes like Piles
Haptoglobin-haemoglobin complex (Hb-Hp) detects hidden blood in stool, more sensitive and superior than FIT alone as relatively stable during it transit through the bowels.
Mutated KRAS gene in the stool that is found in Bowel cancer and Bowel polyps and is related to poor survival and increased tumour aggressiveness
Mutated BRAF gene in the stool that is found in Bowel cancer and Bowel polyps and is related to poor survival
- Stool Sample
Accuracy: ColoAlert is Highly Accurate
- Sensitivity >90%
- Specificity >95%
Laboratory processing time: 9 days

- CT colonoscopies/Colonoscopies DO NOT test polyps less than 5mm in size and left for repeat colonscopy in 5 years
-Detects mutated KRAS gene in the stool that is found in Bowel cancer and is related to poor survival and increased tumour aggressiveness
When do I use ColoAlert?
The American Cancer Society recommend that you start regular screening at the age of 45, or younger if you have a family history of bowel cancer. Most American insurance companies cover stool DNA testing – as a Bowel cancer screening test for asymptomatic, average risk beneficiaries, aged 50 to 85 years.
Currently the NHS Bowel screening with colonoscopy(subject to availability) at 55-59yrs and FIT testing at 60yrs+ and there are no stool DNA testing currently available in the UK.
The purpose of this test is to identify both the presence of blood and DNA changes in the stool that are shed into the stools from precancerous/cancerous cells.
The FIT test detects the presence of blood in the stool, which may be invisible to the naked eye.
Bowel cancer DNA changes shed into the stools may even occur before even bleeding starts. ColoAlert® detects Bowel cell DNA changes that are shed into the stool. This innovative new technology is called Stool DNA (sDNA)
ColoAlert® is the only Stool DNA test kit available in the UK and Europe.
What`s the difference between ColoAlert® and FIT test?
Stool FIT detects bowel blood in the stool that can be due to Bowel cancer, but can also be a sign of Piles, Stomach ulcers, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and so on.
ColoAlert® Basic combines the conventional FIT test with an innovative Stool DNA test that looks for Bowel Cell mutations. This Stool DNA test relies on KRAS and BRAF mutations and not only the presence of blood. ColoAlert® Plus additionally quantifies abnormal bowel cancer cells found in the stools h(DNA)
Bowel cancer may present without bleeding and thus ColoAlert® will be invaluable.
Is ColoAlert available at my NHS GP?
ColoAlert is only available on this site and partner practices. There are no other laboratories in the UK that can process ColoAlert as it requires specialised equipment and staff and so all samples will be sent to a German laboratory for processing

Professional, simple, re-assurance.
I bought ColoAlert Plus. From the beginning, the team at mecheck were incredibly helpful and re-assuring, and handled extremely professionally something which otherwise can feel very personal, and (to be honest) a little embarassing. The kit was well made, easy to use with clear instructions, and the courier return service was smooth and fast.

Why does Bowel Cancer screening concern me?
Big C: 4th Biggest Cancer in the UK (42000 new cases/year)
Serious: 2nd Biggest cause of death in the UK (16300 deaths/year)
Not treated seriously: uptake of screening is poor leading to more late diagnosis and poor prognosis
Under 50s: 10% colorectal cancer cases are diagnosed in under 50s** and 73% diagnosed at later stage** (under 50s)"The number of young adults with bowel cancer is rising at an alarming rate in England at an exponential increase in the incidence of bowel cancer among adults under 50" (March 2020, in the British Journal of Surgery BJS )Age has always been a major risk factor for bowel cancer, with the majority of cases being diagnosed in patients over 60 and therefore bowel cancer screening has focused on older age groups.The study findings are in agreement with other research carried out in Europe and the US in the recent past, which indicates a rapid rise in the incidence of this cancer in young adults
Too Late: "Bowel Cancer 5 year Survival rates are 95% if diagnosed at Early Stage and only 5% at Late Stage" (Cancer Research UK)"The cancers where the UK has the lowest 5-year survival rates of the 7 countries are stomach, colon, rectal, pancreas and lung cancer"(NHS)
What are the symptoms of Bowel Cancer?
Bowel cancer may have no symptoms during the early stages of the disease but there may be some early warning signs. The symptoms of Bowel cancer may not develop until the disease has progressed into stage II or beyond***
Early warning signs of colorectal cancer
Most cancers in the colon or rectum develop from polyps, so screening to find and remove them when they first form helps prevent them from growing into cancers.
Common early warning signs of Bowel cancer include:
Rectal bleeding, either bright or dark red in color
Tenesmus, which is the feeling that you have to empty your bowel but nothing passes
Anemia caused by iron deficiency
Persistent abdominal pain
Unexplained weight loss
Although these symptoms may be caused by other, less serious conditions, such as hemorrhoids, ulcers and Crohn's disease, they should be discussed with a GP. Blood in the stool, even if it only appears intermittently, should never be ignored.
What tests are available?
NHS Bowel Cancer screening tests starts at 55+ with a colonoscopy and FIT test(Test for blood in the stools),
Several tests may be used to diagnose Bowel cancer, these include:-
Colonoscopy: Direct viewing with video camera through the rectum. Needs bowel prep and day case and/or biopsies taken
CT colonoscopy: Non invasive colonoscopy but involves radiation and bowel prep
FIT stool test: To detect blood present in Bowel Cancer but may be present in benign conditions(Piles). Does not detect mutated DNA. A fraction the cost of Colonoscopy.
sDNA stool test To detect mutated KRAS/BRAF genes in stools found in Bowel Cancer. Its useful when Bowel cancer is found early and/or not bleeding yet. A fraction the cost of Colonoscopy.
Bowel Cancer Survival Rates by Stage*
Stage 1 Dukes' A
95 out of 100 men (95%) with stage 1 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
Around all women (100%) with stage 1 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
Stage 2 Dukes' B
More than 80 out of 100 men (more than 80%) with stage 2 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
Almost 90 out of 100 women (almost 90%) with stage 2 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
Stage 3 Dukes' C
Almost 65 out of 100 men and women (almost 65%) with stage 3 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
Stage 4 Dukes' D
More than 5 out of 100 men (more than 5%) with stage 4 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
Almost 10 out of 100 women (almost 10%) with stage 4 bowel cancer will survive their cancer for 5 years or more after they're diagnosed.
RETURN & REFUND
We accept ColoAlert packages back for a full refund if it is returned within 14 days in an unused/undamaged condition. We cannot accept packages that has been damaged or used.
Key Terms – Sensitivity and Specificity
are used to evaluate the analytical
performance of a clinical test. Sensitivity is
defined as the ability to correctly identify those
patients with a disease (true-positive). For
example, a test with 90 % sensitivity
accurately detects this share of patients
with cancer (true-positives). Thus, 10 %
of affected patients will stay undetected
(false-negatives). The higher the sensitivity the
more powerful is the test to correctly identify
patients with cancer. Specificity is defined as
the ability to correctly identify healthy pati-
ents. For example, a test with 95 % specifi-
city correctly identifies this share of pati-
ents without cancer (true-negatives), with an
error rate of 5 %. The higher the specificity the
more powerful is the test to correctly identify
patients without cancer.
“By detecting tumour DNA, ColoAlert® effectively minimises the analytical gap between colonoscopy and other stool tests.“
Prof. Dr. Dr. M. Dollinger; Head of ColoAlert study; Chief Physician Landshut Hospital
An independent multi-centre study investigated the sensitivity and specificity of three stool tests. A total of 566 patients used a blood-in-stool test as well as the M2-PK test and ColoAlert®. These three non-invasive tests were also compared to the existing gold standard, the colonoscopy. The blood-in-stool test scored with a very good specificity of 97 %, but its sensitivity was by far the lowest. In the case of the M2-PK test, the opposite was true. Although the combination of both tests increased the sensitivity to 92 %, it remained very unspecific at 59 %. ColoAlert®1.0 achieved the most accurate predictive value of the non-invasive
methods in this study: In addition to a high sensitivity of 85 %, the minimum specificity of 90 % for the detection of colorectal cancer recommended by oncology guidelines easily could be exceeded. Several other clinical studies have also shown the great benefits of genetic diagnostics in colorectal cancer screening. These serve as further proof of the high clinical significance of tests such as ColoAlert®, which are based on a combination of the evidence of tumour DNA and blood-in-stool.
ColoAlert® version 2.0 has even far superior sensitivities and specificities
