Test Report 

Each sample is analytically tested thrice using PCR. Samples with low/borderline levels of methylated Septin-9 may be detected in some but not in all three PCR runs.


According to test manufacturer’s specifications and FDA guidelines, a Positive result is called when at least two PCR runs detect methylated Septin-9, while a Negative result is called when none or one PCR run detects methylated Septin-9:

mSeptin9 PCR Runs
Result Reported
3 of 3 detected
Positive for methylated septin-9
2 of 3 detected
Positive for methylated septin-9
1 of 3 detected
Negative for methylated septin-9
0 of 3 detected
Negative for methylated septin-9

Patients with Negative results should be advised to continue participating in a recommended colorectal cancer screening program according to the screening guidelines by the Health Promotion Board.

A positive result is not confirmatory evidence for colorectal cancer. Methylated Septin-9 is associated with, and may aid in, the detection of colorectal cancer. Patients tested positive should speak to their healthcare provider for follow-up diagnostic colonoscopy for confirmation of the disease.
