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.

FIT in Screening

With almost 1.5 million new cases diagnosed each year, Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is second only to lung cancer in terms of deaths around the world. Yet since CRC takes many years to develop, implementing screening programmes can be particularly effective for both preventing and diagnosing CRC early on. 

The FIT-based screening test is easy and therefore manages to attract high participation rates – the main driver behind the success of any national or regional screening programme. Generally, national or regional administrations assume responsibility for managing the logistics, financials and efficiency of the programme in close cooperation with their selected laboratory partners.

Thanks to this centralisation approach, one can focus on labs’ main challenges of processing samples quickly, cost efficiently and without losing standardised analytical quality.

Sysmex is experienced in partnering with these national and regional organisations, and with laboratories to address and solve all these challenges.

Please see below different solutions we offer for different throughputs needs.

Sample Testing: up to 1250 samples/day

Smaller-scale screening programmes generally don’t need connections to total lab automation systems due to the low to medium throughput. Sample collection is organised by the administrations in charge, which ensures submission of samples to partner laboratories.

Sysmex Europe is known throughout the region as a knowledge leader. As part of our Life Science portfolio, we offer solutions for all aspects of cancer management. We deliver a holistic approach by acting as your sparring partner. We also offer you a best-in-class network of support and service – as fits the global leader in haematology.

With this sample throughput, we recommend our SENTiFIT® 270 analyser in combination with our SENTiFIT® pierceTube

Sample Testing: more than 1250 samples/day

Larger-scale screening programmes often need connections to total lab automation systems due to the high throughput. Sample collection is organised by the administrative organisation, which ensures submission of samples to partner laboratories. Sysmex has significant experience organising such screening programmes, even on a national scale.

Sysmex is keen to position Sysmex's CRC Screening with FIT as the prime provider of large-scale screening programmes. Thanks to this centralisation approach, one can focus on labs’ main challenges of processing samples quickly, cost efficiently and without losing standardised analytical quality.
