Core Tip Numerous biomarkers detectable in non-invasively collected samples of stool, colorectal mucus, blood, urine, saliva and exhaled air are investigated to develop new tests for colorectal cancer (CRC) early detection and screening. Promising results are often reported, but it is difficult to achieve the right balance between technical complexity, cost and diagnostic performance of the new tests. Today the combination of non-invasive faecal immunochemical test and confirmatory invasive colonoscopy remains CRC screening strategy of choice. However, on-going intense research promises the emergence of new superior non-invasive screening tests that will allow for developing improved prevention strategies for these malignancies.
