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.

Peripheral blood of a patient with CML

Peripheral blood of a patient with CML

The peripheral blood (May-Grünwald-Giemsa stain) of a 27-year old patient with hearing loss showed a massive leukocytosis (680,000/µL) and a marked left shift with a distinct fraction of blast cells. Several eosinophilic cells are clearly visible. Platelets are abundant, although not visible in this part of the blood film. The BCR-ABL fusion gene was detected by FISH analysis of the peripheral blood and secured the diagnosis of CML. Because of the threat of permanent loss of hearing chemotherapy was started within hours after venepuncture (without waiting for the results from bone marrow cytology).
