Frequently asked questions about this home-use faecal occult blood test kit
What is faecal occult blood and who should do the test?
Faecal occult blood is blood in your faeces that you cannot see in your stool or on your toilet paper after you use the toilet. FOBCHECK is designed to detect it. You should do this test, because blood in your faeces may be an early sign of a digestive tract disorder for example growths (polyps) or colon cancer.
How long does the test take?
You can get results in only 5 minutes!
How often should I take the test?
It is recommended that you test for faecal occult blood every year after you turn 50. Some doctors suggest that you start testing at age 40 if your family is thought to be at increased risk. Follow your doctor‘s recommendations about how often you test for faecal occult blood
How accurate is this test?
This test is as accurate as the test your doctor would carry out but you must follow the directions carefully. For accurate results, you must prepare properly for the test and get a good stool sample
Why does the occult blood level of stool test matter?
FOB tests that detect the lowest concentration of human Hb can give you the earliest results of digestive tract disorders. FOBCHECK could detect 40 μg/l human blood haemoglobin in a sample
Does a positive test mean you have hidden blood in your stool?
No. A positive result means that the test has detected blood. This does not mean you have tested positive for cancer or any other illness. So if the result shows the positive result, further testing and examinations should be performed by the physician to determine the exact cause and source of the occult blood in the stool.
If the test results are negative, can you be sure that you do not have a bowel condition?
No. You could still have a bowel condition that you should know about. You should do another test after a week or so. This is necessary because if you have polyps they may not bleed all the time. Additionally, blood may not be uniformly distributed in faecal samples.
