Evaluation of a desk top instrument for the automated development and immunochemical quantification of fecal occult blood.

Most FIT ifov tested reasonably well, but some did not. These four programs provided individual results by product and company. Each of the four proficiency testing programs provided a list of all fecal occult blood tests that they perform evaluations which included both guaiac and immunochemical tests.

Five of the products performed similarly with sensitivities ranging from Author manuscript; available in PMC Jan 3. However, additional information is still needed for deciding which product to use in a particular screening program.

This is the first study we are aware of that has assessed proficiency testing results. The purpose of this study was to summarize the accuracy of results of individual FIT products across pathology proficiency testing programs.


Data Hemoshre For each testing period, proficiency testing programs sent two blinded samples to laboratories to test for the presence of hemoglobin in the sample. Individual laboratories are provided with unidentified specimens for testing. For the manual FITs, sensitivity ranged from Quality and the college of American pathologists.

Evaluation of Fecal Immunochemical Tests for CRC Screening

It is disconcerting that negative samples tested positive. If an automated system is used, another issue to take into consideration is the cutoff point for hemoglobin detection.

The WSLH representative said they purchase their samples from a vendor and do not have that information. The results by product for the two years were tallied, and the overall percent correct as well as incorrect for positive and hemosuure results were calculated for each product.

Laboratories tested the samples using the fecal occult blood testing product used in their labs and reported results back as either positive hemoglobin present or negative no hemoglobin. Conclusions About two-thirds of the commonly used FIT products performed acceptably on spiked samples of human hemoglobin.

An example of interpreting sensitivity and specificity is provided in Table 3. As the recent cascade colorectal cancer screening guidelines are resource driven and emphasize doing what you can for screening with what you have, rather than choosing only one approach or not doing it at all, this additional perspective must be taken into consideration along with the viewpoint of the patient.

After omitting duplicate names, 14 unique FITs remained for testing. It is important for healthcare providers to be aware of the variation in the products available for CRC screening.

An AAB representative reported that their samples are a synthetic liquid stool and the positive specimens contain human blood in large enough quantities to elicit a positive reaction from any test kit. Estimation of the optimal cut off point in a new immunological faecal occult blood test in a corporate colorectal cancer screening programme.

The results serendipitously provide information about which tests are popular or more frequently used.
