Bowel Cancer and Crohn’s Disease
It is our opinion that the low return rates for the bowel cancer screening test and many other medical stool tests requiring the submission of a faecal stool sample is caused by the lack of a suitable collection device being provided as part of the stool sample collection kit. Our stool collection device allows people to easily and hygienically collect their sample. HyStool® provides the obvious solution, and our simple instructions on how to collect a stool sample at home make the process as simple and hygienic as possible.
The issue of hygienically collecting a stool sample at home is not just confined to Scotland nor is it confined to colorectal/bowel cancer screening. HyStool® can be used for any medical test that requires the submission of a stool sample test including Crohn’s disease, Heliobacter pylori testing and Colitis.
Because HyStool® is made from pva it is small and flexible. It can be folded up so that it easily fits inside test kits send out by post for home testing kits such as ther Faecal immunochemical test (FIT). This test is now an established bowel cancer screening test that looks for hidden blood in stool samples. This hidden blood can be an early sign of colorectal cancer.
