In comparison with Guaiac-based testing, Hemosure has a higher specificity due to its unique combination of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies that are specific to human hemoglobin, unlike Guaiac-based tests, that also detect peroxidase activity from animal blood and other food. Therefore, traditional abstinence of food and  drug by patients is no longer necessary. Doctors will find that patient compliance is greatly enhanced.

By reducing the number of false positive results over the conventional guaiac method, Hemosure becomes a more valuable and cost-effective aid in the diagnosis of bleeding associated with gastrointestinal disorders and colorectal cancer.


Reasons FIT is beneficial over other methods:

  • FIT is the least invasive test method
  • Stool collection for FIT is easy for the patient and it  can be done in the privacy of their own home
  • There is no preparation involved with FIT as there is with gFOBT, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy
  •  FIT is significantly less expensive than sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy
  •  FIT has no health dangers associated with it. Although uncommon, sigmoidoscopy and colonoscopy can perforate the lining of the colon. Scope testing also requires the patient to be sedated which can also cause complications
