The Problem: 

Bowel cancer screening has yet to become appealing for everyone that is at risk from this disease.  The biggest problem of bowel cancer is that patients are deterred by the current screening methods that results to less frequent tests. In addition to that current tests do not provide the required accuracy.

This ingestible capsule is combined with fluorescent diagnostics that label early stages of cancer. The capsule travels through the bowel the capsule detecting any highlighted lesion accurately. The test can be used routinely by groups at high risk to develop colorectal cancer.
