Insure® ONE™

According to the CDC, colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. It is the third most common cancer in men and women. (1)

InSure® ONE™ test can be used in screening programs for colorectal disease. InSure® ONE™ is a user-friendly, in-home collection test for blood in stool. Our brush technology has been proven to encourage more people to be screened. (2)

Overview

InSure® ONE™ is a fecal immunochemical test (FIT). It is a highly accurate test for detecting blood in stool, which may be an indication of lower gastrointestinal bleeding associated with disorders such as diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, polyps, colorectal cancer or large adenomas that bleed.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) recommends both men and women at average risk for developing colorectal cancer (CRC) beginning screening at age 45. Read more here.
