What we test

Bowel Screen

The test detects traces of blood that may be present in your stool using a faecal immunochemical test. These traces of blood may be released into the stool as a result of the presence of colorectal diseases. Conditions such as haemorrhoids and fissures may also cause blood to be released in to the stool.

This stool test includes x2 faecal occult blood tests:

This test is used to detect bleeding in the digestive tract, and is used in Australia's National Bowel Screening program. This test can detect tiny traces of blood in the stool, and can indicate the presence of disease at a relatively early stage when stools may appear normal.
