FOB Rapid Test Cassette detects human blood in faeces. The amount of blood increases as colon cancer, ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, and fissures progresses.
Many diseases can cause hidden blood in the faeces. This is also known as Faecal Occult Blood (FOB), Human Occult Blood, or Human Haemoglobin. In the early stages, gastrointestinal problems such as colon cancer, ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, and fissures may not show any visible symptoms, only occult blood. Traditional guaiac-based methods lack sensitivity and specificity, and also have diet restrictions prior to testing.
The FOB Rapid Test Cassette (Faeces) is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Human Occult Blood in faeces.

The FOB Rapid Test Cassette (Faeces) is a rapid test to qualitatively detect low levels of Faecal Occult Blood. The test uses a double antibody sandwich assay to selectively detect Faecal Occult Blood at 50ng/ml or higher, or 6μg/g faeces. In addition, unlike guaiac assays, the accuracy of the test is not affected by the diet of the patients.
The FOB Rapid Test Cassette (Faeces) is a qualitative, lateral flow immunoassay for the detection of Human Occult Blood in faeces. The membrane is pre-coated with anti-haemoglobin antibody on the test line region of the test. During testing, the specimen reacts with the particle coated with anti-haemoglobin antibody. The mixture migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with anti-haemoglobin antibody on the membrane and generate a coloured line. The presence of this coloured line in the test line region indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a coloured line will always
appear in the control line region, indicating that the proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred.
Full instructions are included with the test which you should read through before using the test. Here is a quick illustrated guide:
