Carcinoembryonic Antigen (CEA) is a glycoprotein produced during the fetal stage of human development. Because of its involvement in cellular adhesion, CEA is believed to play a role in the dissemination of colon cancer cells. As such, CEA can help in the monitoring of patients with colon cancer as well as other forms of cancer such as lung, breast, liver, pancreas and stomach. Bulk pricing and biotinylation services are available.
