First DNA-based test in the country increases rate of detection by four times

A private group in the UAE has announced the launch of ‘Colo Alert’, the first DNA-based rapid test in its laboratories to detect early colon cancer in the country.

Colo Alert uses a highly precise molecular-genetic analysis method to detect tumour tissue, increasing the rate of colon cancer detection by almost four times, providing a far-detailed diagnosis, the group said in a press release on Thursday.

To introduce the German-based test, Star Metropolis Clinical Laboratories, a part of Arabian Healthcare Group Network, has signed an agreement with Just4Me Genetics LLC that provides genetic services.
