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.

Our training centres in the EMEA region

Sysmex Europe’s main training centre is located at the regional headquarters in Norderstedt, near Hamburg/Germany. We also have ‘satellite’ training centres in Dubai, Johannesburg and Accra for our distributors.

We pay close attention to the facilities and services at our training centres, as well as to their design and ‘look and feel’. Experience shows that people work and learn best when they feel comfortable. Of course, knowledge transfer remains key.

Knowledge is important at Sysmex, and we make sure all our staff members are well trained. In principle, the content and duration of particular training programmes are the same across all centres – although they may be slightly adapted to regional needs. Everyone receives equal quality education throughout the EMEA region. For example, all our trainers in our satellite training centres are trained initially at our main site in Norderstedt.

Thanks to our training centres in Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe we provide great service to our partners and distributors around the EMEA region.

Our training centres in EMEA

While training has been important at Sysmex from the start, we have been growing so quickly over recent years that we needed more space. For this reason, we opened a new, principal training centre in 2009 at our headquarters in Norderstedt, Germany. With a range of different types of training rooms, we can vary the type of training we give – from simple lectures to intense hands-on training in the laboratories adjacent to each lecture room.

Our first satellite training centre was founded in Johannesburg, South Africa. It opened in 2006 with the inauguration of the Sysmex South Africa offices and has been offering training courses to distributors in South and East Africa ever since.

We follow the same concept in Dubai where we offer training programmes in English to distributors and customers in the Middle East.

Our centre in Accra, Ghana opened in April 2013. It is now serving our distributors in west and central Africa with all training courses offered in English and in French.

Our latest addition to the group of satellite training centres is in Moscow, Russia, where we offer the same quality education in Russian. The training centre is open from the second half of 2013.
