Blood test that detects colon cancer with 94% accuracy available at Any Lab Test Now in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — In an effort to save lives, a Jacksonville-based lab is offering a test that could identify a deadly cancer in just 10 days.

Any Lab Test Now has locations all across the River City, and now offers a blood test that can detect colon cancer.


A colonoscopy is the gold standard for detecting the potentially deadly cancer. It is offered for those 45 and older, and typically covered by insurance.

However, there’s 45 million people who go unscreened each year, according to Any Lab Test Now owner Randi Beesing. Her business offers an option for those who are uninsured or underinsured.

“If they’re positive, [the test] actually has a medical team that will contact them, give them the information, let them know what they should do with their test results--in terms of seeking medical advice, finding a doctor,” Beesing said.

The test is $379, compared to a colonoscopy that is between $1,000 and $3,153, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
