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.

TMA Grand Master

The TMA Grand Master not only retains the benefits of the TMA Master but it also elevates the tissue microarray workflow to a new level. With its high capacity, high speed and new features it is finally possible for the TMA technique to enter the clinical pathology workflow.

The tissue microarray (TMA) technique can be used as a valuable, high-throughput diagnostic method. By being able to place up to several hundred different samples into one paraffin block, TMA brings major economies in time quality and costs of tissue preparation, staining and slide preparation. The real advantages of tissue microarrays cannot be achieved when done manually, though.
