Colorectal cancer prevention can be easy.

The OC-Sensor FIT is an immunochemical test for the quantitative detection of human haemoglobin (blood constituent) in stool samples and is the most widely recognised FIT test worldwide. Compared to conventional chemical and immunochemical tests it offers a range of advantages:

  • Simple and hygienic application: one sample is enough
  • Standardised and reliable evaluation: better detection rates compared with conventional tests
  • Internationally tested: evidence from multiple European studies with 100,000+ participants

OC-Sensor completely fulfils all the requirements of the European Guidelines for the quality assurance in colorectal cancer screening and diagnosis.
