MiCheck® Prostate is intended for use as an aid to clinicians in the decision to proceed to prostate biopsy in patients with an elevated PSA.
- MiCheck® Prostate provides an estimate of the risk of aggressive prostate cancer.
- MiCheck® Prostate has demonstrated the ability to differentiate aggressive from non-aggressive cancer and no cancer.
- MiCheck® Prostate demonstrates a compelling advantage in specificity over existing products, outperforming the benchmark PSA test as well as other tests such as % free PSA and the Prostate Health Index (PHI) in a head-to-head comparison.
- The lack of specificity of other tests has led to criticism due to the resulting unnecessary biopsies. MiCheck® Prostate helps fill this substantial unmet clinical need by allowing a reduction in number of biopsies while minimising the risk of missing out aggressive prostate cancer cases.
✔ Ease of use – blood collection made at the same time as the blood draw for a PSA test.
✔ No interruption to the clinician’s current workflow.
✔ Clear clinical utility – single page well-defined report to help the clinician determine whether the patient needs a biopsy or future follow-up in the coming months.
✔ Timely delivery of results – ready for the patient’s next visit to the clinician.
✔ Dominant health economics in comparison to standard of care.
✔ Early availability as a LDT through a CLIA certified high complexity laboratory.
