Bowel Health Rapid Test


Something not right? Test your bowel health to understand your next steps.

Symptoms such as diarrhoea, constipation, abdominal pain, a change in your bowel habit, or pain when you have a bowel movement, could indicate the presence of a gastrointestinal issue such as ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, fissures, or bowel cancer. It is possible that these conditions may not cause any symptoms, and the presence of non-visible blood may be the first sign.

The result of this test could help you understand what next steps to take in managing your bowel health and will help you decide whether you need further testing or treatment.

  • Tests for non-visible blood in your stool

  • Simple stool sample lateral flow test

  • Results in 5 minutes, no need to send to a lab

  • FREE, fast delivery

What you will discover

Many diseases can cause hidden blood in the faeces. In the early stages, gastrointestinal problems such as colon cancer, ulcers, polyps, colitis, diverticulitis, and fissures may not show any visible symptoms but can cause your stools to contain non-visible blood.

This test works by detecting the presence of this non-visible blood within a specific concentration that would suggest an abnormality in your bowel health. There are no dietary restrictions prior to testing because the accuracy of the test is not affected by diet.
Screen your stools with this test, to help you identify if your symptoms could be due to a bowel health concern.

How to use a rapid test

Intended use

Please note: This test can be used to screen for occult blood in a stool sample as a screener for bowel health and provides a preliminary test result based on a simple home self-test. It has been designed by experts to qualitatively detect levels of faecal occult blood. This means that while it will give you a good indication of whether you have bowel health issues that need investigating, you’ll need a secondary analytical test or consultation with a healthcare professional to confirm the status of your bowel health.
