ColonView lateral flow tests are intended for simple detection of fecal occult blood (FOB) in stool samples. The detection of blood is based on highly sensitive immunochemical detection of hemoglobin or hemoglobin/haptoglobin complex. The principal use of the Biohit ColonView Hb and Hb/Hp tests is to screen for lower gastrointestinal (GI) pathologies, such as colorectal cancers and large adenomas that bleed.
The Biohit ColonView tests are specially designed to detect human hemoglobin and hemoglobin/haptoglobin complex in stool samples using immunochemical method, with improved specificity for the detection of lower GI disorders, including colorectal cancers and adenomas.
ColonView Hb test is an ideal tool for colorectal cancer screening. Combination of the ColonView Hb test with the ColonView Hb/Hp test improves the detection of also large adenomatous polyps, which may develop into colorectal cancer. To ensure the best detection of bleeding in the colorectal tract, ColonView Hb test should be used in combination wíth ColonView Hb/Hp test to detect hemoglobin/haptoglobin complexes.
ColonView Hb and Hb/Hp tests are provided with easy-to-use patient Sample Collection Kits that include all that is needed for convenient home sample collection, without the need to touch fecal samples. The same sample can be used for both Hb and Hb/Hp testing. ColonView Hb and Hb/Hp tests are simple, one-step lateral flow tests that give a result in 15 to 25 minutes.
Please note: ColonView lateral flow tests are for research use only in the United States
