The FOB Rapid Test Strip (Feces) is intended only for use with human fecal specimens.
Patients should not collect samples during or within 3 days of their menstrual period, if they have bleeding hemorrhoids, blood in the urine, or if they have strained during bowel movement.
Alcohol, aspirin and other medications taken in excess may cause gastrointestinal irritation
resulting in occult bleeding. Such substances should be discontinued at least 48 hours prior to testing.
No dietary restrictions are necessary before testing.
Perform the testing immediately after the specimen collection. Do not leave the specimens at room temperature for prolonged periods. Specimens may be stored at 2-8°C for up to 72 hours.
Bring specimens to room temperature prior to testing.
Pack the specimens in compliance with applicable regulations for transportation of etiological agents, in case they need to be shipped.


Internal procedural controls are included in the test. A colored band appearing in the control region (C) is considered an internal positive procedural control. It confirms sufficient specimen volume and correct procedural technique.
External controls are not supplied with this kit. It is recommended that positive and negative controls be tested as a good laboratory practice to confirm the test procedure and to verify proper test performance.
