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.
Full instructions are included with the test which you should read through before using the test. Here is a quick illustrated guide:
