About Second Generation FIT®

 Second Generation FIT® is the revolutionary test to aid in the detection of Colorectal Cancer that is fast, accurate, and easy to use.  Now you can test for the same advanced colon cancer biomarker that hospitals, labs, and physicians offices do in the privacy of your own home, with no diet or medicine restrictions. 

To perform the test, unscrew the collection tube (pictured above) to expose the wand.  Collect a small sample of fecal matter from your tissue paper, and insert the wand back into the tube.   Unscrew the smaller cap and apply three drops of solution to the cassette (below).   Results will appear in 1 to 3 minutes. A fecal immunochemical test is considered a preferred screening method for colorectal cancer detection by the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force, the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable, the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Cancer Society, and the Center for Disease Control.  ² 

Second Generation FIT® is amazingly accurate, detecting globlin levels at 50 ng/mL (50 billionths of a gram). The American College of Gastroenterology recommends a FIT test once per year, and recognizes the Fecal Immunochemical Test as the number one alternative to colonoscopy.³  In fact, in a recent study of over 26,000 patients, FIT caught more colon cancers than colonoscopy did.⁴ 

Now you can use the same test as physicians do in the privacy of your home, quickly and accurately, without a prescription or seeing a doctor.  Second Generation FIT® can be performed and resulted in five minutes or less.

Second Generation FIT® is available online at,, All CVS Stores Nationwide, and all Kinney Drug Stores in New York and Vermont.
