Step 2

Once you have made your payment online, the kit will be shipped. Follow the instructions provided in the kit, and then return the sample to a Biron service centre within a maximum of 7 days after collecting it.
Step 3

Results and analysis

Our laboratory will analyze the sample. Results are usually available within 48 hours.
Step 4

Case management

In the event of a positive result from the screening test, medical care will be initiated.

Please note that screening for blood in the stool is not a diagnostic test for colon cancer. Thus, a positive FIT result does not necessarily mean the presence of cancer. A colonoscopy is required for diagnosis.

It is generally recommended every two years, starting at age 50.

How much does the colorectal cancer screening kit cost?

This screening protocol includes the shipping of the sampling kit directly to your home, analysis of the sample, and case management in the event of a positive result. The entire protocol is available from Biron for $149.
