FIT Test Collection Procedure



Thank you for choosing SNT Biotech for your medical supply needs. In this guide, we will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to collect your FIT (Fecal Immunochemical Test) Kit sample. Following these instructions carefully will ensure accurate results and a smooth testing process.

Step 1: Prepare for Collection

Before collecting your sample, make sure you have the following items ready:

  • Your FIT Kit, which includes a collection tube and a collection stick.
  • A clean and dry surface, such as a bathroom countertop or a table.
  • Gloves, if provided in your FIT Kit.
  • A timer or a watch to keep track of the collection time.
Step 2: Open the Collection Tube

Start by removing the collection tube from the FIT Kit packaging. Check the expiration date on the tube to ensure it is still valid. Open the tube carefully, following the instructions provided in the FIT Kit.

Step 3: Collect the Sample

Using the collection stick provided in your FIT Kit, gently scrape the surface of your stool sample. Make sure to collect a small amount of stool, approximately the size of a pea. Avoid touching the inside of the collection tube or contaminating the sample with urine or water.

Step 4: Secure the Sample

Place the collected stool sample into the collection tube. Make sure the sample is fully submerged in the liquid inside the tube. Secure the tube tightly to prevent any leakage during transportation.

Step 5: Record the Collection Time

Using the timer or watch, note down the exact time of sample collection. This information is crucial for accurate test results and should be provided when returning the FIT Kit to the laboratory.

Step 6: Dispose of the Collection Stick

After securing the sample in the collection tube, carefully dispose of the collection stick according to the instructions provided in the FIT Kit. Proper disposal helps maintain hygiene and prevents contamination.

Step 7: Return the FIT Kit

Follow the instructions provided in your FIT Kit to return the sample to the laboratory for testing. Make sure to include any required paperwork or documentation along with the FIT Kit.
