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.

Glossary

pH

The pH describes how acidic or alkaline a substance is based on the hydrogen ion concentration. If urine is persistently acidic or alkaline, this can indicate a disturbed acid-base balance. Persistently alkaline pH values point towards urinary tract infection. For microscopy, it is good to bear in mind that at pH levels above 7, cells can lyse faster than under normal (slightly acidic to nearly neutral) conditions.
