SPEX CertiPrep is putting BLUE in Your Lab

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness month. Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men in the United States, other than skin cancer. Prostate cancer affects more than 3 million men every year, worldwide. At SPEX CertiPrep, we support the hope that the greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection for higher long-term survival rates.

During the month of September, all web orders will receive a FREE blue vial rack to brighten up your bench space and be a reminder to take the steps to plan and detect prostate cancer in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. Awareness needs to be ongoing so we are putting blue in your lab!
