The (Fecal Occult Blood Test) FOB Smart Rapid Test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of human hemoglobin from blood in fecal.
The Fecal Occult Blood Test is a qualitative membrane strip based immunoassay for the detection of human hemoglobin from blood in fecal. In this test procedure, anti-hemoglobin antibody is immobilized in the test line region of the device. After an adequate volume of test specimen is placed in the specimen well, it reacts with hemoglobin antibody coated particles that have been applied to the specimen pad.
This mixture migrates chromatographically along the length of the test strip and interacts with the immobilized hemoglobin antibody. If the specimen contains hemoglobin antigen, a colored line will appear in the test line region indicating a positive result. If the specimen does not contain hemoglobin antigen, a colored line will not appear in this region indicating a negative result. To serve as a procedural control, a colored line will always appear at the control line region indicating that proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane wicking has occurred. "
Fecal Occult Blood (FOB), human occult blood, or human hemoglobin. In the early stages, gastrointestinal problems such as colon cancer, ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, and fissures may not show any visible symptoms, only occult blood. Traditional guaiac based methods of occult blood testing lack sensitivity and specificity, and also require diet restrictions prior to testing. Fecal occult blood tests are used as a screening tool for detecting lower gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding that may be related to iron deficiency anemia, peptic ulcer, ulcerative colitis, polyps, and colorectal cancer.
The FOB Test Device is recommended for use by health professionals in routine physical examinations and in monitoring for GI bleeding in patients in hospitals or in physicians’ offices.
The Fecal Occult Blood Test is a simple, visual qualitative test that detects human hemoglobin from blood in fecal. The test is based on immunochromatography and can give a result within 5 minutes.
