FOB test

Qualitative detection of blood in stool – New: simply at home!

Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers in Europe. It develops discreetly, often without causing discomfort and over years. A side effect is bleeding that is hidden in the stool. The first FOB test, approved as a home test, detects even the smallest amounts of this occult blood in the stool. In this way, colon cancer can be detected and treated at an early stage.
