Do I need to make any changes to my current medications or supplements or diet before testing?
No, It is not recommended to make any changes to your current medications or supplements, or diet before testing. The only requirements for taking CancerDetect™ Oral & Throat are:
fast for at least 8 hours (Don't eat or drink anything but water before bed; just like what you do before taking a blood test. Fasting less than 8 hours can affect your saliva sample quality.)
then collect your sample within 1 hour of waking up before eating or drinking anything but water AND before brushing your teeth or using mouthwash. Food and mouth cleaning products, including mouthwash, can affect your saliva sample quality and may lead to sample rejection by the lab or an inaccurate test result.
When is the best time to collect my saliva sample?
Collecting your saliva should be done first thing in the morning, after fasting for at least 8 hours and within 1 hour after you wake, before brushing your teeth or using mouthwash, or before eating any food or drinking anything other than water. Fasting less than 8 hours, or having had food or brushed teeth can affect your saliva sample quality, and may lead to sample rejection by the lab or an inaccurate test result.
How long does it take to get results?
On average the analysis can be completed in about 4 weeks from our lab receiving the sample.
Is CancerDetect available in my country?
CancerDetect is currently only available in the US, excluding NY state.
