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.

Gaucher cells

Gaucher cells

Bone marrow histology (periodic acid Schiff stain, PAS) displaying macrophages on the left, with a cytoplasm resembling crinkled parchment. They are so-called 'Gaucher' cells. Gaucher's disease is characterised by a congenital defect of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase leading to an increase of certain glycolipids (cerebrosides) inside the macrophages. On the right side of the picture the bone marrow appears normal.
