Prep toilet

Next, prep your toilet by removing any bluing or cleaning agents. You should also ensure your toilet bowl isn’t rusty and that your toilet does not use salt water. Water softeners are permitted. Flush twice before making your bowel movement.

Make bowel movement

After your bowel movement, place the toilet paper in one of the blue waste bags provided with the kit. Do not place any toilet paper in the toilet or flush the toilet after your bowel movement. Then pick up your test card and lift the flapped marked “Lift Here for Sample.”

Understanding your results

Your Healthcare Provider should have your results within or around 14 business days and you must follow-up with your doctor if you receive a “positive” test result. Note, this test does not replace a physical exam by your doctor.

A “negative” test result means blood was not found in the sample; however, colorectal lesions may bleed intermittently and blood may not be uniformly distributed in or on the stool, so a negative test result may occur even when a gastrointestinal disease is present. Failure to follow the test instructions could affect the test results.
