Cxbladder is a suite of easy-to-use and non-invasive tests designed to help rule out urothelial bladder cancer in patients experiencing blood in urine (hematuria) and to monitor for recurrent disease in those who have been treated for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.
I’m a Clinician I'm concerned about blood in urine I'm being monitored for bladder cancer recurrence
When tests confirm the presence of blood in your urine which is either visible as red or pink coloring (gross hematuria) or invisible to the naked eye (microhematuria), your doctor will want to understand the cause.
Causes of blood in urine include bladder or kidney stones, kidney infections and injuries, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and other medical illnesses.
Blood in urine is also the most common symptom of bladder cancer and often the first sign. It can also indicate cancer in other urologic organs such as the kidney.
Cxbladder is a test designed to rule out urothelial bladder cancer
Thankfully most patients who present with blood in urine will not have bladder cancer, but it’s best to be sure. Cxbladder Detect can reliably rule out urothelial cancer in those presenting with microhematuria, reducing the need for further invasive procedures where the probability of bladder cancer is low, while ensuring those who do require immediate care get it sooner.
In patients experiencing microhematuria or visible blood in urine (gross hematuria), Cxbladder Detect can resolve uncertainty when other tests for bladder cancer are inconclusive. This can help doctors make a diagnosis.

Patients that have been treated for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer have unique monitoring needs to protect against the threat of recurrence. After assessing a patient’s risk profile, doctors will recommend a regular ongoing schedule of cystoscopies to examine the inside of the bladder and urethra.
Cxbladder Monitor is a non-invasive surveillance alternative that can reduce the burden of cystoscopy in those being monitored for recurrent non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.
- In suitable cases following TURBT, Monitor can reduce the frequency of invasive cystoscopy required.
- When no recurrence has been detected after several years, Cxbladder Monitor test may provide an alternative to cystoscopy after consulting with your physician.
