Colorectal Screening Programs
Health fairs and employee screening programs are an important healthcare function. When considering which tests to include in your next program, consider the economy and effectiveness of the ColoCARE fecal occult blood test. Helena Laboratories is happy to work with program sponsors, providing assistance in designing a successful program with ColoCARE.
Guaiac slides have been widely used as a low-cost, high-quality screening tool. But patient compliance can be poor with guaiac slides. That's why, with the aid of one of America's top medical specialists in the field of colon and rectal surgery, we developed ColoCARE.
ColoCARE is a clean, simple self-test. Sensitivity and specificity equals guaiac slides, but there's no stool handling, no developers and no processing. Compliance rates as high as 90% have been reported. ColoCARE eliminates the problems associated with guaiac slide tests − lower compliance rates, specimen mailing, delayed results, laboratory processing, handling and disposal of biohazards, etc. Try ColoCARE, the easy-to-use, economical choice for your next screening program.
Screening Program Packs and Special Orders
|5650||ColoCARE Screening Pack, 250 Patients
ColoCARE is an excellent choice for health fairs and employee screens. Each patient kit provides the means to test three consecutive bowel movements and contains everything needed to complete testing in the privacy of home. Testing is accomplished by simply placing ColoCARE in the toilet after a bowel movement and noting any color change on a response card. ColoCARE is flushed away and the response card returned to the screening sponsor or physician for follow up.
For those preferring classic guaiac paper slides, traditional ColoScreen and new ColoScreen-ES are cost effective, high quality products. ColoScreen-ES is a lower cost, highest quality alternative to Beckman® Coulter Hemoccult® Sensa®. ES means extra sensitive and it provides a brighter blue color development that makes interpretation easy.
