Proclarix® is a next generation blood test for prostate cancer. It is non-invasive, thus a diagnosis can be performed without the risk, pain or costs of tissue biopsies. The analysis is fast and saves time by using the same blood sample as PSA testing. Proclarix is precise and reliably identifies high-grade prostate cancer. It will be easily accessible as it can be performed at any local laboratory.
