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.

Blood film of a patient with polycythaemia vera (PV)

Blood film of a patient with polycythaemia vera (PV)

The automated blood count of this 55-year old man with PV showed a normal haemoglobin concentration of 15.7 g/dL. Red blood cells were markedly increased to 8.2 million/µL, but appeared very small, as is shown in the peripheral blood film (May-Grünwald-Giemsa stain). The MCV was only 60 fL, the haematocrit was 61%. White blood cells (22,300/µL) and platelets (612,000/µL) were also elevated.
