Epi proColon® 2.0 CE not only has a significantly enhanced performance over the first generation Epi proColon® test, but it also features a number of other improvements that should facilitate its use for diagnostic routine in different regulatory environments including the U.S. For example, results using Epi proColon®2.0 CE can be obtained within a typical laboratory work shift of 8 hours. By contrast, the first generation test took two days of laboratory work. Further adaptations include the use of cGMP manufactured reagents, simplified handling and improved automation capabilities.
