iFOB Test — HEMOSURE



Hemosure, Inc. has continuously researched, developed, and produced rapid test systems for detecting gastrointestinal disorders. Hemosure has not only revolutionized the medical industry, but has also set new industry standards and guidelines with its CLIA waived Hemosure® Immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood Test (IFOBT), a trade name recognized worldwide in Immunological Fecal Occult Blood Testing (FIT). One of the more notable considerations is there are no drug or diet restrictions.


Simply stated, Hemosure® IFOBT is a rapid, convenient and odorless qualitative, sandwich dye conjugate immunoassay for the determination of human hemoglobin in feces; typically used for Colorectal Cancer screening. Colorectal Cancer, when discovered at its earliest stages, is the most preventable and curable of all cancers. Routine Colorectal Screening (CRC) is extremely important, which is why Hemosure is dedicated to educating ALL and extending the lowest possible cost.


In February 2009, the American College of Gastroenterology, with a dramatic change of direction, released its first update in CRC Guidelines in almost a decade. The new ACG Guidelines state:

"The American College of Gastroenterology supports the joint guideline recommendation that older guaiac-based fecal occult blood tests be abandoned as a method for CRC screening...the ACG recommends the FIT as the preferred cancer detection test."
