FIT (faecal immunochemical tests) have superior characteristics compared to conventional qualitative tests. They are analytically and clinically more sensitive and specific. What’s more, you can automate the FIT measurements and adjust the concentration at which a positive result is reported. FIT is therefore considered the best screening test for laboratories.
Sysmex offers FIT testing for two main audiences: Large-scale screening programmes (rule-in testing) and testing of symptomatic patients (rule-out testing) in hospital or clinical routine settings.
Thanks to this centralisation approach, you can focus on your main challenges of processing samples quickly, cost efficiently and without losing standardised analytical quality.

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 in case of a higher workload. The FIT solutions from Sysmex offer you this freedom of choice.
