SENTiFIT pierceTube

We offer the patented 2-in-1 SENTiFIT pierceTube, which has been especially designed for use with either of the dedicated faecal analysers SENTiFIT 270 Analyser and SENTiFOB Analyser, 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 Analyser, SENTiFOB Analyser 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.


SENTiFIT® and FOB GOLD®  are trademarks in various jurisdictions, which are exclusively licensed to Sentinel CH.
