BowelScreen Australia® uses a clinically proven, sensitive and reliable faecal immunochemical test (FIT).
The Australian designed and manufactured test and accredited pathology services are provided by Clinical Genomics.
The test comes complete with full instructions, a dedicated customer helpline, as well as a reminder service.
No faecal handling, diet or medication changes are required to perform the test, which can be completed in the privacy of your own home.
The Australian Government is phasing in the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program by 2020.
Eligible Australians aged 50-74 will receive a taxpayer-funded bowel cancer screening test in the mail and are encouraged to complete and return it.
