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.

Platelet aggregates

Platelet aggregates

It is of utmost importance to always report a correct value for the platelet concentration. When detecting thrombocytopenia the laboratory should therefore double-check that it is not due to platelet aggregates (->) (pseudo-thrombocytopenia). In a haematology analyser they are usually automatically identified and flagged. In a blood film they are mostly located at the feather edge or the lateral edges.
