Faecal Haemoglobin - qFIT

Since Monday 3rd September 2018, quantitative faecal immunochemical testing (qFIT) has been available to Primary Care in Greater Glasgow and Clyde.  The service is provided by the Biochemistry department in Glasgow Royal Infirmary.  qFIT is designed to detect small amounts of blood in stool samples using antibodies specific to human haemoglobin.  Analysis is carried out on the HM-JACKarc system (Alpha Laboratories), with a positive result being 10 µg Hb/g faeces and above.
