Colorectal cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancer and a leading cause of cancer-related death. Early
detection of colorectal cancer improves the cances of survival and thus reduces mortality. In healthy subjects, trace
amounts of blood in stools can be detected in the absence of cancer or other severe pathology. This is called physiological
leakage. The threshold of the HEMOTRUST® rapid test was fixed above the threshold corresponding to physiological
leak for these traces not to be detected. The first FOB (Fecal Occult Blood) tests commercially available used a gaiac
method which required appropriate dietary restrictions to minimize false positive and false negative results.
HEMOTRUST® is a rapid immunochromatographic test for the qualitative detection of human haemoglobin in fecal
samples without dietary restrictions.
