Fecal immunochemical test (FIT)

What is FIT?

Fecal immunochemical test (FIT, iFOBT) is used for screening colorectal cancer and gastrointestinal diseases.
The test detects invisible human hemoglobin found in red blood cells on the surface of stool.
When the test result shows significant level of hemoglobin, it can be a sign of diseases in the digestive tract, such as colorectal cancer and pre-cancerous polyps. Patients with abnormal result are referred for a colonoscopy examination.
Colorectal cancer is highly curable when diagnosed in the earlier stage, thus early detection by FIT is very important.


History of colorectal cancer screening

Guaiac test (gFOBT) used to be a major way for screening of colorectal cancer. However, patients are required drug and dietary restrictions before taking the test so that they avoid false results.
Recently FIT has been replacing guaiac test. There are no restrictions for patients and FIT is specific to detect human hemoglobin from lower digestive tract by using antigen-antibody reaction.

Eiken Chemical launched sales of fully automated FIT analyzer in 1989 as the first company in the world. Since then, we have been developing automated FIT system ‘OC-Sensor’ for 30 years in Japan and now it is expanding to more than 45 countries. Many countries use our FIT system for national screening program of colorectal cancer. We have a lot of experience to support establishing national screening system from delivery for patients to management of analysis data.
