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.

Thick blood film with high density of malaria pathogens

Thick blood film with high density of malaria pathogens

A 'thick blood film' is prepared by spreading a drop of blood on a slide in a way that approximately 20 layers of red blood cells are on top of each other. The slide is then left to dry and subsequently treated with Giemsa solution to lyse the red blood cells. This process leads to a higher density of the malaria pathogens (here: trophozoites of Plasmodium falciparum ->) on the slide so that they can be detected more easily and quickly. The large nuclei are debris from lysed white blood cells.
