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.

DI-60

  • Efficient, detailed review and validation for greater accuracy
  • Faster, improved workflow
  • Shorter turnaround thanks to track connection
  • Long-term storage and archiving of cell images
  • Consistency in analysis quality

Fast and accurate, safe and connected!

The Sysmex DI-60 digital morphology analyser offers efficiency, quality and peace of mind. It is the only digital image analysis device on the market that is fully automated within the haematology workflow – connected directly to the track. This means turnaround times are quicker than with standard devices since you no longer have to transport the slides to the analyser by hand. You also have further walkaway time for more relevant tasks.

Standardisation, quality or biohazard issues are a thing of the past. It delivers a superb level of analysis quality and detail that you can count on since it is backed by Sysmex’s renowned service and support. Speed, quality, safety and efficiency in a single analyser.

This is what the DI-60 consists of

The Sysmex DI-60 is an automated, cell-locating image analysis system. It is connected directly to the analyser track and therefore eliminates the need for manual intervention in the haematology workflow in the imaging cycle.

The device itself consists of an automated microscope, an extremely high quality digital camera and a computer system that collects and pre-classifies cells from stained blood smears. It automatically locates cells on the slide and takes an image of each cell found, after which it analyses and pre-classifies them using advanced image processing. The number of white blood cells that are analysed is user-definable.

This is how the DI-60 works

To perform a differential count with morphology assessment, a thin film of blood is wedged on a glass slide from a peripheral blood sample and stained according to the RAL MCDh, May-Grünwald Giemsa or Wright protocol. With XN, this is done fully automatically by the SP-10 slide maker and stainer module. The DI-60 analyser acquires and pre-classifies the cells, after which the operator verifies and modifies the suggested classification of each cell if necessary. The operator may also introduce additional observations and comments when needed.

The DI-60 can pre-classify 12 WBC categories. These include segmented and band neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, monocytes, lymphocytes, atypical lymphocytes, plasma cells, promyelocytes, myelocytes, metamyelocytes, and blast cells. In addition to white blood cells, the system also pre-classifies the following five non-WBC categories: smudge, artefacts, giant platelets, platelet clumps and nucleated red cells. These are reported as the number of NRBC/100 WBC. Cells that are pre-classified with a low confidence level are placed in a category called “Unidentified.”

The device also presents an overview that can be used to characterise red blood cell morphology. Thirty-five images are collected in the optimal RBC examination area for pre-characterising the following characteristics: polychromasia, hypochromasia, anisocytosis, macrocytosis, microcytosis, and poikilocytosis. The system also provides tools that let the user improve the efficiency and consistency of estimating the PLT concentration. All images and results are stored in a database.
