Faecal Testing “OC-SENSOR”

OC-SENSOR Reagent Lineup


30+ years, 45+ countries

  • OC-SENSOR is the leading Faecal Immunochemical Test.
    With an extensive body of evidence supporting the platform, OC-SENSOR is recognized worldwide as the standard in colorectal cancer screening and symptomatic triage pathways.
    When launched in 1989, OC-SENSOR became the first automated faecal occult blood test. Through a continuous platform of innovation,  OC-SENSOR has built a reputation of quality and reliability, which in-turn has facilitated the development of regional and national colorectal cancer screening and primary care in over 45 countries.
