National Bowel Screening Programme

Prohealth supplies the Eiken Chemical Co. Ltd. OC-Sensor Bowel Screening test in New Zealand.  These tests are accessible via the New Zealand Government National Bowel Screening Program and some private pathology laboratories.

The National Bowel Screening Programme is free for people aged 60 to 74 years and is being extended to Māori and Pacific people aged 50 to 74 years. It aims to save lives by finding bowel cancer at an early stage when it can often be successfully treated.
