FIT Vs Cologuard

Fecal immunochemical colon cancer test

 Colorectal Cancer Screening has updated guidelines, which sometimes conflict depending on which body has authored them, and an increasing number of options.  Just ten years ago, your options were colonoscopy or guaiac card at a doctors office.  In 2014, the guaiac card was abandoned as a CRC screening method in favor of the newer fecal immunochemcial test.  Shortly thereafter, Cologuard and EpiPro Colon were introduced.  

fecal immunochemical test buffer tube

Unscrew the tube, pictured above, to expose the wand.  Collect a small sample of fecal matter from your tissue paper, and insert the wand back into the tube.   Shake the tube, then apply three drops onto the cassette and read your results.  The entire test takes five minutes or less and the fecal immunochemical test is considered a preferred screening method for Colorectal Cancer Detection by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force, the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Cancer Society, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control).  ²


positive FIT fecal immunochemical test


 Second Generation FIT® is amazingly accurate, detecting globlin levels at 50 ng/mL (50 billionths of a gram). The American College of Gastroenterology recommends a FIT test once per year, and recognizes the Fecal Immunochemical Test as the number one alternative to colonoscopy.³  In fact, in a recent study of over 26,000 patients, FIT caught more colon cancers than colonoscopy did.⁴
