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!”
— E. Roberts
“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.”
