CerTest Transferrin Turbilatex is a non-invasive immunological test which can be used as a complement in the detection of FOBT.
Together with FOB Turbilatex, it is a sensitive specific tool for the detection of neoplasms in the colon.
Transferrin, like hemoglobin, is an iron-binding protein of the free iron in blood. Its presence in feces can be linked with bleeding of the upper or lower intestinal tract, as it remains stable after its passage through the gastrointestinal tract. This makes it the perfect complementary analyte in the detection of occult digestive bleeding.
This is the reason why CerTest has designed the Transferrin Turbilatex turbidimetric assay, which detects and quantifies human transferrin in the same sample collection vial as FOB Turbilatex.
