FIT screening

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The good news is that CRC incidence and mortality can be reduced significantly if detected early enough.

Faecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are non-invasive and can detect blood in stool invisible to the naked eye. Due to its simplicity, FIT is currently considered the best non-invasive test for CRC screening.

Invest a little time in your own health by taking the FIT to prevent or detect colon cancer early on.

January - Crystals in urine

Crystals in urine sediment can exhibit fascinating shapes and colours under the microscope. Most types occur very often and are a normal finding (e. g. calcium oxalate). Interestingly, most crystals can be considered artefacts as they are not present in the body but developin the collection container when the urine temperature drops. Nevertheless it is importantto distinguish them from diagnostically relevant particles such as red blood cells.
