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.

Sienna+ Tracer

  • Optimised particle size
  • Easy to use
  • Fast localisation

Sienna+ Tracer

Sienna+® is a dark brown suspension of organically coated, superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) particles with a tight size distribution of around 60 nm. It is injected subcutaneously where the lymphatic system’s natural physical action filters out the particles and so enables sentinel nodes to be located using the Sentimag® probe. The magnetic tracer is safe, easily stored and has a long shelf life. It is also compatible with standard histological techniques, as well as the One-Step Nucleic Acid Amplification (OSNA®) assay. Due to its brownish colouration Sienna+® is traceable both magnetically and visually.

 

As sensitive as the radiotracer, as easy as blue dye

  • Optimised - Particle size is optimised for filtration and retention by sentinel lymph nodes
  • Easy to use - Simple to store and handle, significantly improving workflow compared with radioactive tracers
  • Fast - Localisation can start just 20 minutes after injection*
  • Compatible with OSNA® assay


* Migration time can increase with patient age, weight or breast size
