How does PreventID® Haemo/HaptOccult work?

How accurate is this test?
Over the years, Preventis has become a leading authority in the field of colorectal cancer diagnostics, with several decades of experience in cancer screening. PreventID® Haemo/HaptOccult is a rapid test for extended cancer screening, which works with the highest sensitivity and precision. It can even detect bleeding polyps and tumours located in higher sections of the bowel. Due to the detection of human haemoglobin and haptoglobin complexes, which are more stable than haemoglobin alone, this test is more sensitive. It is not necessary to make any dietary changes or to stop taking medication before taking the test, as the test is able to differentiate between human and animal blood, which may be present after eating animal product.
Whom was this test developed for?
