FIT is used to screen for Colorectal Cancer (CRC) by detecting small amounts of blood in stool samples using antibodies specific to human haemoglobin. It does not call for diet restrictions and patients need participate only in an easy, one-time sample collection procedure. The haemoglobin specificity and ease of the test make it superior in terms of analytical and clinical performance compared to other Faecal Occult Blood Tests (FOBT).
Sysmex offers FIT testing for two main audiences: Large-scale testing for national or regional screening programmes, and symptomatic testing, primarily in hospital or clinic settings.
