Product Information

The benefit of carrying out a SELFCheck home test in privacy ensures confidentiality as well as providing the necessary incentive needed to take further steps in terms of managing personal health and earlier consultation with a healthcare professional, which will facilitate earlier medical intervention should further action be needed.

Description:

There are a number of reasons why both men and women may have traces of blood in their faeces, such as haemorrhoids, polyps and, in rare cases, bowel cancer. All of these conditions can be treated more effectively and efficiently if medical advice and intervention begins as early as possible.

Bowel health screening and other medical conditions like prostate disorders are not easily discussed and can be embarrassing or awkward. Therefore, a simple and hygienic home screening test that can detect abnormal blood in faeces can provide men and women with help and the incentive needed to seek medical advice and help.

The SELFCheck Bowel Health test is easy to use and uses the faecal immunochemical principle (FIT), requiring only a small sample of faeces to perform the test, giving an easy to read visual result in less than 10 minutes. As the test uses the FIT detection method, no change in diet or fasting is required prior to test.

Each kit contains:

1 sample container with buffer solution and collection stick, 1 test cassette and full instructions for use.

What is the difference between the FIT test and the FOB test?

The faecal immunochemical test (FIT) is a more recent version of the faecal occult blood (FOB) test. SELFCheck is a FIT test and provides a more accurate result than the common FOB tests used in current NHS screening programmes. The benefits of the FIT test is that it can be more sensitive and does not suffer from interference from diet.

Do I need to test on more than one occasion?

Colon polyps can bleed intermittently so a single FIT or FOB test, although very sensitive, might give a negative result. Using two or more tests on different occasions can statistically give a better chance of detecting blood in the sample.

Is it easy to read the result?

Yes, it is just like a pregnancy test: Two lines in the result window is a positive result and one line is negative

What is the advice following a positive test result?

Make an appointment to see your GP and mention that you have had a positive result with a FIT test kit.
