About InSure® ONE™
ColonCancerScreeningKit.com uses the InSure ONE screening kit, a convenient, at-home fecal immunochemical test kit that only requires water-based sampling of one bowel movement. Colorectal cancer screening has never been easier.
Early detection for a preventable cancer
Colorectal cancer that is caught in the early stages has a 5-year survival rate of over 90%. Yet, only 39% of cases are diagnosed in early stages due to low screening rates. When disease spreads to distant organs, the 5-year survival rate drops to 11%.
Accurate colorectal screening
InSure® ONE™ is a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) that qualitatively detects human hemoglobin from blood in fecal samples, which may be an indication of lower gastrointestinal bleeding associated with polyps, colorectal cancers, or large adenomas that bleed.
Studies show that the InSure® ONE™ testing helps more people actually get the screening they need. FIT testing is considered a tier 1 test for colorectal screening and is supported by medical guidelines, including the American Cancer Society, the American College of Gastroenterology, and the US Preventive Services Task Force for early detection of Colorectal Cancer.
