Test Usage

This test system is intended for the qualitative detection of fecal occult blood in feces. It is recommended for use in routine physical exams, monitor for bleeding in patients and screening for colorectal cancer or other lower GI disorders that can cause gastrointestinal bleeding (e.g., diverticulitis, polyps, and Crohn's disease). No dietary restrictions are necessary for the patient due to the detection of human hemoglobin in this assay.
