The at-home FOB (Faecal Occult Blood) test gives you a rapid indication of your gastrointestinal condition aiding the detection of several gastrointestinal diseases that in their early stages may have no visible symptoms including colon cancer, ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, and fissures.

Currently, the traditional guaiac (a chemical substance from guaiacum trees) based screenings lack sensitivity and specificity, and they also involve dietary and medicinal restrictions prior to testing unlike FOB rapid tests.

Occult blood means nonvisible blood in the faeces that could be a sign of a gastrointestinal disease not accompanied by readily discernible symptoms. Early detection of FOB can enable you to seek further medical advice or adopt healthier lifestyle regimes for early-stage diseases that could prevent more severe gastrointestinal damage or control the condition.

This rapid two-step lateral flow immunoassay test uses a specimen collection tube inclusive of extraction buffer and a chromatographic test cassette to detect levels of faecal occult blood above 50 ng/mL for self-testing and is mailed directly to you.

Concentrated levels of FOB will show as a positive test result on the test region (T) of the cassette and the more intense the colour, the higher the concentration of FOB in the sample which can indicate a gastrointestinal issue or disease.

The results can then be used to seek further medical advice and to implement healthier lifestyle choices depending on the body’s condition.
