FOB (FECAL OCCULT BLOOD) TEST
Fecal Occult (Hidden) Blood Test is a qualitative immunochromatographic test for detection of human hemoglobin (hHb) in human feces for professional use.
- The presence of fecal occult blood in the stool is associated with gastrointestinal disorders such as diverticulitis, polyps, and Crohn's disease, that may lead to colorectal cancer if not treated.
- Immunochromatographic test methods have superior clinical specificity when compared to a chemical based test (e.g. guaiac) as well as do not required any dietary restrictions.
