FIT for CRC SCREENING PROGRAMMES (rule-in testing)

The FIT-based screening test is easy to perform and manages to attract high participation rates. Generally, national or regional administrations assume responsibility for managing the logistics, financials and efficiency of the programmes in close cooperation with their selected laboratory partners.

Thanks to this centralisation approach, you can focus on your main challenges of processing samples quickly, cost efficiently and without losing standardised analytical quality.

For more information as to which solution would suit your individual needs better, please get in touch with your local Sysmex representative.

Up to 1,250 Samples/Day

Up to 1,250 Samples/Day

Smaller-scale screening programmes generally don’t need connections to total lab automation systems due to the relatively low to medium throughput needs. Sample collection is organised by the administrations in charge, which ensures submission of samples to partner laboratories.

Sysmex Europe is known as a knowledge leader. As part of our Oncology portfolio, we offer solutions for all aspects of cancer management. We deliver a holistic approach by acting as your sparring partner. We also offer you a best-in-class network of support and service – as fits the global leader in haematology. 

With a throughput of up to 1,250 samples per day, we recommend our SENTiFIT 270 analyser in combination with our SENTiFIT PierceTube.

More than 1,250 Samples/Day

Larger-scale screening programmes often need connections to total lab automation systems due to the high throughput. Sample collection is organised by the administrative organisation, which ensures submission of samples to partner laboratories. Sysmex has significant experience organising such screening programmes, even on a national scale.

Sysmex is keen to help in CRC screening with FIT as the prime provider of large-scale screening programmes. Thanks to this centralisation approach, there is room to focus on labs’ main challenges of processing samples quickly, cost efficiently and without losing standardised analytical quality.

With this sample throughput, we recommend our walk-away solutions.

Up to 100 Samples/Day

Sysmex Europe is known as a knowledge leader. Within the scope of our oncology portfolio, we offer solutions for many aspects of cancer management. We deliver a holistic approach, supporting you and your work in our role as a partner. We offer you a best-in-class network of support and service – as befits the global leader in haematology. 

With a throughput of up to 100 FIT samples per day, we recommend to you the SENTiFOB analyser in combination with the SENTiFIT pierceTube for your dedicated testing. 

Testing of symptomatic patients (rule-out testing) in hospital or clinical routine settings

Symptoms such as rectal bleeding, unexplained weight loss, anaemia, abdominal pain and an altered bowel habit may be associated with CRC, but in most cases will have different causes. FIT detects blood in stool invisible to the naked eye and is an effective triage for physicians when determining which patients will most likely benefit from further invasive investigation.

For the testing of symptomatic patients in a routine lab, you would usually expect a low number of FIT samples. To meet these needs, you can place the patented universal FOBGold  tube on your lab’s clinical chemistry analyser. Considering economical as well as practical aspects, you may favour a dedicated faecal analysis system (SENTiFOB or SENTiFIT 270) in case of a higher workload. The FIT solutions from Sysmex offer you this freedom of choice.

Clinical Chemistry system

Clinical Chemistry system

In a clinical setting with low throughput needs for symptomatic testing, we recommend you to place the patented universal FOBGold open tube in your clinical chemistry platform. Thanks to the high stability of the buffer used in the sample tube, you can accumulate your FIT samples and process them in batches at a time convenient for your routine.

The benefit of this solution is that we offer everything you need to set up your FIT testing, without the need to invest extra money and space in a dedicated faecal analyser.

With your clinical chemistry analyser connected to your laboratory information system, you will ensure traceability, accompanied by the major benefits of quantitative results and standardisation of your FOBGold testing.

Dedicated Faecal Analyser

Dedicated Faecal Analyser

In clinical settings with a high volume of symptomatic patient testing, sample batching can be impractical, so in this case, we recommend using a dedicated faecal analyser. Sysmex suggests the SENTiFOB for up to 100 samples per day, and the SENTiFIT 270 for a higher number of samples or if you wish to combine the testing of faecal haemoglobin with that of other faecal parameters. Both SENTiFOB and SENTiFIT 270 are stand-alone solutions that work together with the patented FOB Gold pierceTube. 

Note: For more information about other faecal immunochemical assays that are available on SENTiFIT 270, please get in touch with your local Sysmex representative.
