Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK but too often colorectal cancer is detected at a late stage making it the second most common cause of cancer death in the UK. Survival rates are greatly improved with early diagnosis. The risk of bowel cancer rises steeply from around the age of 50–54 years.

qFIT is not a test for cancer. qFIT testing uses specific antibodies against human haemoglobin and quantifies the amount of blood in stool without dietary restriction. Sample collection kits are easy to use. Only one sample is required. If blood is detected, the patient will require follow-up tests to determine the reason for the presence of blood in the stool.

qFIT can be used as a primary screening test aimed at individuals without symptoms, or as a test to guide the management of individuals who present with symptoms. The sample collection process is the same for both but the difference between asymptomatic and symptomatic is the threshold for abnormal results.
