Cancer Screening

Standard screening programs are effective for some but not all cancer types and in general are far more complex and resource-intensive than early diagnosis as they require special equipment and dedicated personnel. Performing Cancer screening tests regularly may find breast, cervical, and colorectal (colon) cancers early, when treatment is likely to work best.

Trucheck™ is a blood test that can enable early detection of multiple cancers in asymptomatic individuals. Trucheck is intended to be performed annually as a routine test.

Why should I consider Trucheck™?

  • Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) and their clusters are present in the blood of almost all cancer patients and are undetectable even in seemingly healthy individuals.
  • Trucheck™ technology to detect and characterize CTCs has been proven through extensive clinical validations involving more than 40,000 participants.
  • The test is performed at the world-class Datar Cancer Genetics laboratory, which meets and exceeds all national and international standards.

Trucheck™ is a blood test that can enable early detection of Diabetes Associated Cancers in asymptomatic individuals.

Individuals with Type 2 Diabetes are twice as likely to be diagnosed with liver or pancreatic cancers as compared to those without Type 2 Diabetes. These individuals are also at higher risk of other cancers such as those of the gallbladder, kidney, bladder and colorectum. 

Trucheck™ DM is intended to be used for the detection of cancers of the Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas, Kidney, Bladder and Colorectum, in individuals recently diagnosed, or with existing, Type 2 Diabetes.

Trucheck™ is not intended to be and should not be considered as a replacement for any Standard of Care screening tests.

Within the limits of error, a ‘negative’ result is a reasonable indication of undetectable cancer of the type covered by the test. For other cancers not covered by the test, no inference should be drawn from a ‘negative’ result.

A ‘negative’ result means that at the time of the test there were no detectable cancer cells circulating in the blood.

As Trucheck™ is a non-invasive blood test, there is no disadvantage in frequent testing. However, we advise that Trucheck™ should be performed every 12 months in case of every negative result.

The test indicates the location for the select types of cancers with high accuracy, and in others the Tissue of Origin can be identified with reasonable accuracy. In all cases of 'positive' results, the report should be interpreted by your physician who can guide you on further course of action.

No, such individuals should seek expert medical advice without delay.

The Trucheck test, which highlights cancer cells circulating in the blood, correctly identifies 92 per cent of breast cancers – around five percentage points higher than mammography.
