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.

A range of technologies to cover all bases

Sysmex diagnostic devices are known around the world for their reliability, accuracy and quality. Since we were founded over forty years ago, we have been driven by the desire to innovate so that we can do our job better. To improve the analysis capabilities of our devices so we can help clinicians help people more effectively. 

In those forty years it is fair to say we have changed the haematological analysis landscape. Nowadays we are the global leader in the haematology market. This is to a large extent due to our focus on knowledge and technology – backed up by service and solution-based thinking.

Modern automated blood cell counters use various technologies to determine the parameters of a full blood count. When EDTA blood samples are aspirated by the analyser, blood is aliquoted (separated into small portions before being used in the various channels) and treated with various reagents to support the cell-specific properties. A defined volume is separated from these reagent blood mixtures and introduced into different measurement lines for detection. RBC and PLT are measured simultaneously in one detector using DC sheath flow detection . A cyanide-free reagent is used to transform the haemoglobin so that it can be measured by absorption photometry .

Our 5-part differential haematology analysers use fluorescence flow cytometry  as the prime detection method for WBC, differential, reticulocytes and NRBC.
