Q. How is the BTA stat® Test done?
A. The urine sample is collected in a clean plastic container provided by the doctor. The test is performed on a BTA stat device using only 5 drops of urine. The BTA stat Test detects a substance released into the urine by bladder cancer cells. The presence of this substance in urine will cause a colored line to form on the BTA stat device, which indicates a positive result. BTA stat test can be performed by a doctor, hospital staff or a patient at home.
