Aventir Biotech Launches New 510(k) Cleared Fecal Occult Blood Screen Test

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Aventir Biotech's ForSure® Fecal Occult Blood (FOB) Screen Card Test has just been cleared for both over-the-counter and professional applications by the FDA, making it readily available for convenient and hygienic detection of possible Colorectal Carcinoma, Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, and Colon Polyps in humans. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death for men and women.

Aventir's innovative product will meet the growing needs of improved sample collection and testing accuracy for diseases related to Colorectal Carcinoma. "We are very pleased to bring the ForSure® Fecal Occult Blood (FOB) Screen Card Test, the first licensed OTC product to the US market. Early detection of the disease will help dramatically reduce healthcare costs across the nation," stated Jerry Lee, Marketing Director of Aventir Biotech, LLC.

This screen card test can accurately identify indicators of hHb (human hemoglobin) in stool. ForSure® Fecal Occult Blood (FOB) Screen Card Test is stable without the use of any dietary restrictions. These factors make this test a more effective option than the traditional guaiac-based tests. The ForSure® test features a dual-purpose collection tube to serve as a sample applicator and a device to preserve the transportation of patient specimen collection. The test has been designated as CLIA-waived, and will provide its user with a clear and easy way to diagnose Colorectal Carcinoma in just minutes.
