Concerned about their condition, patients want quick answers, with minimal intervention.
With FIT testing they can have access to more information about the symptoms they exhibit and the possible causes for them.
Unfortunately IBS and other benign bowel disorders can exhibit similar symptoms to more serious conditions, such as colorectal cancers.
As a consequence the longer it takes to resolve these concerns the more anxious patients become.
Hence, the ability to identify those at greater risk and then fast track these patients for appropriate colonoscopy and treatment is highly desirable.

Whether you are using FIT to assess patients in a screening programme, or investigating symptomatic patients, the entire start-to-finish process requires specialist consideration. Alpha Laboratories can provide a range of products and FIT services to help you develop your programme, tailored to your specific requirements. From faecal collection devices to patient instructions, personalised packaging to logistics, our Bowel Cancer Specialists are on hand to help you create the ideal solution to support your patient pathway.
Alpha Laboratories is able to create specific FIT instructions for use (IFU) tailored to your testing service. A localised design can better reach your range of demographics, simplify returns and improve uptake of the test. Customising your IFU will ensure you engage with your target audience more effectively, leading to an increased participation rate and less waste.
Depending on where your samples are being sent (GP practice, testing lab, central processing hub) you may require an innovative packaging solution. Whether your patient samples are sent via the postal service, dropped off at a local GP or clinic, or sent to a main hospital, we can provide a range of solutions to make it simpler for all parties involved.
