Checklist before sending samples


Do not proceed if you

- are currently menstruating

- currently suffer from an infectious gastrointestinal disease

- your sample collection is not scheduled for the next 24 hours

First remove all contents from the packaging. Now flush your toilet once.

Open the enclosed stool catcher and attach it to your toilet as shown.

The stool catcher and stool sample may come into contact with clear water, but

avoid cleaning agents.

2.Sampling for Faecal occult blood test

Take the smaller of the two tubes and hold it steady and upright with the blue

lid and yellow handle facing upwards to avoid spillage of the buffer liquid.

Now turn the yellow handle firmly anticlockwise until it clicks and gently

pull out the yellow dosing stick. Prick the stool sample with the dosing

stick in 3 different areas. Only allow the grooves of the stick to fill with stool.

Put the dosing stick back into the stool sample tube and refrain from pulling it

out again. Then turn the tube clockwise, with a little pressure downwards, so that the dosing

stick audibly snaps into the blue cap.

Caution: If the liquid has flakes, warm up the tube with your hands in order to

dissolve them first. Now open the enclosed collection tube with the brown cap without spilling the liquid. Use the spoon to take a pea-sized amount from 3 different places out of

the middle of the stool sample. Caution: The total amount from the

3 places must not be larger than theheaped spoon.Then put the spoon back into the tube

and close it carefully.Shake the collection tube vigorously for at least one minute until an uniform mixture is obtained.
