OncoK9

Early Cancer Detection in Dogs with a Simple Blood Draw

OncoK9 is a first-in-class multi-cancer early detection (MCED) test. Pet parents get mammograms and colonoscopies to help detect cancer early. Now, our dogs have OncoK9, a cancer screening test developed specifically for them.

Simple blood draw

Simple
Blood Draw

Most cancer tests are either invasive (like a tissue biopsy) or require special equipment (like imaging). OncoK9 requires only a simple blood draw. The sample collection can take place during the same visit when the veterinarian prescribes the test.

Multi-cancer coverage

Multi-Cancer
Coverage

OncoK9 has demonstrated cancer signal detection in 30 different cancer types, including 8 of the most common cancers in dogs.

Cutting-edge technology

Technology

OncoK9 interrogates millions of cell-free DNA fragments in each blood sample, using sophisticated next-generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics algorithms to detect genomic alterations associated with cancer.

Detection

By identifying cancer signal in cell-free DNA extracted from a blood sample, OncoK9 may allow for earlier detection of cancer, before the onset of clinical signs.

OncoK9 – Aid in Diagnosis

When veterinarians identify clinical signs or other clinical findings that may lead them to suspect cancer, they may choose to prescribe OncoK9 as part of their clinical workup.
