FOB Rapid test cassette /Strip (Feces) is a one step chromatographic immunoassayfor the qualitative detection of human occult blood in feces.


A FOB (Faecal Occult Blood) rapid test is a diagnostic tool designed to detect the presence of occult (hidden) blood in faeces. This test is often used as a screening method for gastrointestinal bleeding, which can be indicative of various conditions such as colorectal cancer, gastrointestinal ulcers, or inflammatory bowel diseases.

Key features of FOB rapid tests include:

Non-visible Blood Detection: FOB tests identify blood in the faeces that is not visible to the naked eye (occult blood).

Screening for Gastrointestinal Disorders: The test is commonly used for early detection of gastrointestinal bleeding, serving as a screening tool for colorectal cancer and other gastrointestinal disorders.

Immunological or Chemical Methods: FOB rapid tests may use immunological methods (antibodies that react with human haemoglobin) or chemical methods to detect the presence of blood.

Simple and Quick: These tests are designed to be simple to use, providing rapid results, often within a few minutes.

At-Home Testing: Some FOB rapid tests are available for at-home use, allowing individuals to collect a small sample of faeces and perform the test themselves.

Clinical Settings: Healthcare professionals also use FOB rapid tests in clinical settings for routine screenings or when investigating gastrointestinal symptoms.

Early detection of occult blood in the faeces is crucial for identifying and addressing underlying gastrointestinal issues. Positive FOB test results may prompt further diagnostic investigations, such as colonoscopy or other imaging studies, to determine the cause of the bleeding and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

It’s important to note that while FOB rapid tests are valuable screening tools, they are not definitive diagnostic tests, and positive results should be followed up with additional medical evaluation for a comprehensive assessment of gastrointestinal health. Always follow the instructions provided with the test kit for accurate and reliable results.
