FIT screening

Le cancer du côlon, également appelé cancer colorectal, est une maladie fréquente chez les personnes âgées pour la plupart. La détection du cancer du côlon à un stade précoce peut augmenter de manière significative le taux de survie d'un patient. En faisant usage d'un test immunochimique fécal (FIT), de petites quantités de sang (à l'aide d'anticorps anti-hémoglobine humaine ont été détectés dans) les échantillons de selles.

Sysmex offre des tests FIT à deux groupes: les tests à grande échelle pour la population nationale ou régionale, et des tests symptomatiques principalement dans les hôpitaux et les milieux cliniques. En savoir davantage sur notre microsite de dépistage FIT http://www.fitscreening.eu/


Malvern MicroCal

All chemical reactions or physical events involve a change in energy, usually accompanied by heat release (exothermic) or absorption (endothermic). Calorimetry is the science of measuring heat changes from chemical reactions or physical events. Microcalorimetry is an ultrasensitive development of the technique that measures very small heat changes in small sample volumes, making it suitable for biomaterials.
Malvern MicroCal microcalorimeters are powerful, analytical tools used to study characterization of biomolecular stability and interactions. The range includes both Isothermal Titration and Differential Scanning calorimetry.

How it works

Isothermal Titration calorimetry

Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) is a technique used in quantitative studies of a wide variety of biomolecular interactions. It works by directly measuring the heat that is either released or absorbed during a biomolecular binding event.
This allows accurate determination of binding parameters:

  • affinity constants (KD)
  • stoichiometry (n)
  • enthalpy (∆H)
  • entropy (ΔS)


Differential Scanning Calorimetry

Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a technique used to characterize the stability of a protein or other biomolecule directly in its native form. It does this by measuring the heat change associated with the molecule’s thermal denaturation when heated at a constant rate.
This allows accurate determination of “unfolding” parameters:

  • Heat capacity change  (∆Cp)
  • Temperature midpoint (Tm)
  • Enthalpy  (∆H)
