Bowel Screening Products
Alpha Laboratories has a wealth of expertise and experience through its long history of supplying the National Bowel Screening Programmes with gFOBT and FIT tests.
We have been involved with the National Bowel Cancer Screening programme since 1998, as the key supplier of hema-screen™ (FOBT - faecal occult blood tests). Moving to more advanced, sensitive and specific methods the screening programmes are now adopting faecal immunochemical testing (FIT) and Alpha Laboratories has been instrumental in helping to roll this out.
The use of quantitative FIT in the assessment of the symptomatic is changing too, as more publications have demonstrated its use as a “rule-out” test has benefits to clinicians, laboratories and patients. It can be used to triage patients presenting with abdominal symptoms as a step in the patient pathway to help manage colonoscopy resources more efficiently.
