QuickVue iFOB Test

Colorectal Cancer

The QuickVue iFOB (immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood) Test detects the presence of blood in stool specimens. Blood in stool is an indication of a number of gastrointestinal disorders, including colorectal cancer. The QuickVue iFOB Test requires only one specimen, and because it is specific to human hemoglobin, patients are not required to adhere to strict dietary or medication restrictions.


The QuickVue iFOB (immunochemical Fecal Occult Blood) test is an immunochemical device intended for the qualitative detection of fecal occult blood by laboratories or physicians’ offices. It is useful in determining gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding found in a number of gastrointestinal disorders, such as: diverticulitis, colitis, polyps, and colorectal cancer. This test is recommended for use in: (1) routine physical examinations or when hospital patients are first admitted, (2) hospital monitoring for GI bleeding in patients, and (3) screening for colorectal cancer or gastrointestinal bleeding from any source.
