The alarming rise inmelanoma has motivated WRC to develop Dermalert®. This imaging software provides a powerful means to help individuals detect new or changing moles that may signal a melanoma.
The SoretScan™ technology uses a spectroscopic approach for a rapid and economical analysis of blood present in fecal samples. The HemeAlert® test is not only sensitive but is capable of determining whether the blood in a stool sample originated from a bleeding site in the upper or lower GI tract. This capability will add an important capability for the economical screening for colorectal cancer.
