FIT screening

The FIT-based screening test is easy and therefore manages to attract high participation rates – the main driver behind the success of any national or regional screening programme. Generally, national or regional administrations assume responsibility for managing the logistics, financials and efficiency of the programme in close cooperation with their selected laboratory partners.

A new method using flow cytometry for water testing

Bacteria naturally populate most aquatic ecosystems including drinking water. Sysmex Partec realises the number of bacteria present in drinking water is an important consideration in the production process. Our analytical instruments use a new method to determine bacterial counts in drinking water ensuring early preventative action can be taken. Rapid and reliable, the method is recommended by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health.

Using this new method, it is now possible to determine the microbiological status of drinking water rapidly. The procedure can be carried out at water companies, in distribution networks and by end consumers and mobile testing is also possible. The technique relies on the determination of total cell count (TCC) and the quantitative relationship between cells with low and high nucleic acid content in fresh water by means of flow cytometry. It is quick, reliable and cost-effective, enabling bacterial contamination in drinking water to be characterized in less than 15 minutes.
