Manipulation-free: from faecal sample collection to direct analysis

We offer the patented 2-in-1 FOB Gold pierceable tube, which has been especially designed for use with either of the dedicated faecal analysers SENTiFIT 270 and SENTiFOB , or total lab automation (TLA) walk-away solutions for high-throughput testing needs. 

The combination of the tube and the analyser make the laboratory workflow particularly easy and efficient: Tubes are received directly from patients and/or physicians, and can be analysed directly on the SENTiFIT 270, SENTiFOB  or TLA solution. This eliminates the need for any further tube handling.

Other features such as long haemoglobin stability, barcoding and standardised sample volume further enhance the use of these tubes.


Advantages for the laboratory

  • Minimum sample handling: the tube is used to collect the faeces and is analysed directly on the stand-alone analysers SENTiFIT 270 and SENTiFOB, or on a walk-away TLA solution
  • Standardised faeces sampling: always collect the correct sample volume
  • Stable haemoglobin: 32 d at 2-8°C, 14 d at 28-32°C – simplifies lab
  • Easily identify patients thanks to barcoded tube labels
  • The faeces collection tube conforms to transportation regulations for UN3373 classification (biological substance transport)
