Beckman Coulter Diagnostics Announces Availability of New Prostate Cancer Blood Test

Beckman Coulter Diagnostics has announced the availability of the Prostate Health Index, or phi, a non-invasive blood test that is reportedly three times more specific in detecting prostate cancer than PSA, or prostate-specific antigen. The new test's accuracy decreases the need for many men who test positive for elevated PSA levels to undergo a biopsy in order to achieve a reliable diagnosis. Results of a multi-center clinical study found a 31% reduction in unnecessary biopsies due to false-positives as a result of using the phi test. The phi test is available to physicians nationwide through Innovative Diagnostics Laboratory (IDL), a national clinical reference laboratory specializing in personalized blood-based testing to find, understand and treat cancer.
