Colon Cancer Detection with a Fecal Immunochemical Test 


The Second Generation FIT, or Fecal Immunochemical Test, detects blood in the lower GI tract.  Blood in the lower GI tract can be indicative of many things, such as colon or rectal cancer, diverticulitis, colitis, Chron’s disease, IBD, and IBS just to name a few.  A positive FIT test should always be reported to your primary care physician or gastroenterologist.  

The American College of Gastroenterology recommends a FIT test ANNUALLY for persons over 50 with African Americans beginning an annual test at 45.  For persons unwilling or unable to have a colonoscopy, the FIT test has been shown to be nearly as effective as colonoscopy for detecting colorectal cancer.  Please note that while a FIT test may detect colon cancer or other disease states mentioned above, ONLY a colonoscopy can confirm these disease states.

Clinical studies have shown that the Pinnacle BioLabs Second Generation FIT Colorectal Cancer Detection Test is highly sensitive for detecting human hemoglobin in and around the stool, a key indicator of abnormalities in the colon and rectum that doctors use to help screen for colorectal cancer. In a study of patients who were at average risk, high risk or had no symptoms at all, The Pinnacle BioLabs Second Generation FIT was found to have 33% greater sensitivity for colorectal cancer than a leading guaiac-based FOBT screening test.

 How the Fecal Immunochemical Test Works 

how a fecal immunochemical test works


The science 
behind the most advanced biomarker for colorectal cancer is exacting.  The Second Generation FIT will generate a positive result at equal to or greater than 50 nano grams of spiked globin levels in feces.  A nanogram is 1 billionth of a gram.  The Second Generation FIT is counting billionths of the colorectal cancer biomarker.  To visualize a nanogram consider a paperclip, which weighs approximately 1 gram. Now imagine dividing it into one million pieces. Now divide just one of those pieces into 1,000 pieces. That would be a nanogram.

The manufacturing of the Second Generation FIT is exacting.   Designed in Nashville, TN, with  specific parts from The Netherlands, Germany and China - this test travels the world before it gets to your door.  While assembly lines and high tech equipment are necessary for design, the actual tests themselves are all hand made.  The colloid-gold double sandwich dye conjugate assays underneath the plastic cassettes are cut and placed, by hand, ensuring the glass fibers match up to the wells exactly for optimal performance.  All of which is done in a state-of-the-art facility receiving an “A” grade from the US Food and Drug Administration.  is the final step in the process.  Beautiful, thick, clear, rose-colored bands set Pinnacle’s FIT product apart from other tests.  Often times physicians and nurses will perform rapid, in-vitro diagnostic tests and find themselves wondering “Is this a positive result or not?”   Our FIT product simply doesn’t have that issue, as it is as decisive as it is accurate.  So much so the FDA granted Pinnacle OTC (over-the-counter) status, meaning that not only would medical professionals have no problem performing the test - but it was so intuitive and easy to read non-medical people would have no problem performing it.

 The FIT test saves lives.  Our packaging saves trees.  In early 2014 we began working with Amazon.com on a new concept called “Frustration Free Packaging" which is been an overwhelming success.  We save an estimated 1.5 trees per day in packaging, and at a reduced shipping cost (and its toll on the environment) of nearly 60%.
