DESIGNED TO FIT INTO EVERYDAY LIFE.
InSure ONE is a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) that qualitatively detects human hemoglobin from blood in fecal samples. The samples will generally be collected by the test subject at home and the test developed at laboratories or professional offices. The InSure ONE test is used to aid in the detection of lower gastrointestinal bleeding.
When to use InSure ONE?
The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends both men and women at average risk for developing colorectal cancer (CRC) beginning screening at age 50. InSure ONE is a highly accurate test for detecting blood in fecal samples, which may be an indication of lower gastrointestinal bleeding associated with disorders such as diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, polyps, colorectal cancers or large adenomas that bleed.
Colorectal cancer screening guidelines
Fecal immunochemical tests are recommended by medical guidelines for use in colorectal cancer screening programs and are recognized as being highly effective when repeated annually.
- FIT is supported by medical guidelines, including The American Cancer Society, The American College of Gastroenterology and the USPSTF, for use colorectal cancer screening programs.
- The U.S. Multi-Society Task Force for Colorectal Cancer recommends colorectal cancer (CRC) screening begin at age 50 years in asymptomatic persons, with colonoscopy every 10 years or FIT annually as first option, Tier 1 tests for screening for colorectal neoplasia. Download Guidelines Summary PDF
Key benefits of InSure ONE
- InSure ONE is the easiest FIT on the market, and may improve patient compliance. It is the only test that uses a toilet water sample; there is no need to collect stool in a sling or bucket, or sample feces directly; (compare with competing FIT and FIT-Fecal DNA tests).Using the brush supplied in the collection kit, enables the patient to brush around the stool sample in the toilet bowl and collect a water sample.
- InSure ONE is performed with a single bowel movement; (compare this with competing gFOBTs which require 2 or 3 separate bowel movements).
- Low cost; (compare with FIT Fecal DNA test which is approximately 10 times the cost and patients may incur out of pocket costs for screening).
- Highly accurate; recent study demonstrated that InSure FIT has significantly higher sensitivity for advanced colorectal neoplasia than two other FOBTs (i.e. OC FIT-CHEK and Hemoccult II SENSA)
- InSure ONE is an FIT, which is recommended as a Tier 1 testing option for colorectal cancer screening programs, along with colonoscopy, by the USMSTF in 2017 1 (compare with FIT Fecal DNA test, recommended as a Tier 2 option).
