Turbidimetric FIT assay

The IDK TurbiFIT is a particle enhanced turbidimetric immunoassay (PETIA) that uses polyclonal antibodies for the determination of human haemoglobin in stool samples. The assay is intended for the detection of traces of blood in stool (faecal occult blood), which serves as a preliminary screening test for colorectal cancer in asymptomatic patients and also a test for possible bowel disease in patients with lower abdominal symptoms.

Stool sample extraction

Stool samples can be extracted directly using the IDK® TurbiTUBE®, which allows easy, clean and precise preparation of sample extracts. The tube contains 1.5 ml of IDK stool extraction buffer, creating a constant dilution of 1:100 that is ready for analysis and can be loaded directly onto the analyser. This system enables the determination of three parameters using IDKs Turbidimetric assays (calprotectin, pancreatic elastase and haemoglobin) from one single stool sample extract, saving time and money. Stool extracts are stable for up to 7 days at 2-8 °C.

Key Advantages

Enables rapid and effective screening test for bowel disease and colorectal cancer
Simple, fast and reliable, with short incubation times
Results available in less than 15 minutes, depending on the clinical chemistry analyser
Suitable for high throughput workflows, including continuous loading and random access
Reduced hands-on time using the IDK TurbiTUBE with one extract for three turbidimetric assays – calprotectin, pancreatic elastase and haemoglobin
Broad measuring range (1-100 μg/g)
Good clinical correlation with corresponding ELISAs
