Using the FIT

FIT is a simple test that you can do in the privacy of your own home. There are no restrictions to your diet or medications. Two samples are required from two separate bowel movements over a two day period (or as close to that timeframe as possible).

Simply scrape the small wand stick from the tube provided over the stool and place the wand back in the sample tube. When you are finished, place your samples in the postage-paid envelope provided and mail it at the post office. Specimens will be viable in the provided envelopes for 15 days.
