Introducing a transformative way to detect melanoma

Medicare now covers the DermTech PLA,
a scalpel-free way to detect melanoma.

The DermTech PLA is a pain-free, adhesive patch that looks for the genes found in melanoma. The test is easy and takes only a few minutes.

Your doctor can perform the test in their office or may decide that a telemedicine visit is more appropriate. Your doctor’s office can then facilitate a remote collection with a simple adhesive patch skin collection kit.

Melanoma is one of the most dangerous types of skin cancer because of its ability to spread quickly.

Regular skin checks are important to finding melanoma before it spreads.

The DermTech PLA reduces the chance of missing melanoma. Catch it early and improve your chance of survival.

How it works

The DermTech PLA is placed on a suspicious mole and then painlessly peeled off like tape.

Your doctor sends the patch to the DermTech lab.

In less than a week, your doctor will receive your test results and can decide whether your mole needs to be biopsied.

“I have had more than 10 surgical biopsies and have the scars to show for it. I was so excited that there was an option to test without getting cut. After a few days, I found out the test was negative – nothing to worry about!”

“I can do [the DermTech PLA] and if the mole is benign, it saves a biopsy on a patient…. With DermTech, you get answers to very important questions and life-saving questions for your patients.”
