FIT screening

Dikkedarmkanker, ook wel colorectaal carcinoom, is een veelvoorkomende ziekte onder voornamelijk ouderen. Het detecteren van dikke darmkanker in een vroeg stadium kan de overlevingskans van een patiënt aanzienlijk vergroten. Door gebruik te maken van een fecale immunochemische test (FIT) worden kleine hoeveelheden bloed (met behulp van antilichamen voor humaan hemoglobine) opgespoord in ontlastingsmonsters.

Sysmex biedt FIT-tests aan voor twee hoofdgroepen: grootschalig tests voor nationale of regionale bevolkingsonderzoeken, en symptomatische tests die hoofdzakelijk plaatsvinden in ziekenhuizen of klinische omgevingen. Lees hier meer over op onze FIT screening microsite

Sysmex Belgium is teaming up with Cytocell

Datum: 2018-06-12 Tags: Nieuws, Belgium, Netherlands

Cytocell was established in 1991 at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital. Since 2003, Cytocell has been located in Cambridge where we design and manufacture an ever-increasing range of fluorescence in situhybridisation (FISH) probes. The Cytocell product range consists of the Aquarius® Range, directly labelled FISH probes for constitutional cytogenetic and oncology (both pathology and haematology) applications, the Multiprobe Range,  an extension of Cytocell's proprietary Chromoprobe® technology whereby DNA FISH probes are reversibly bound to the surface of a glass device, the myProbes® Custom FISH Probes​, a custom design and manufacture service that provides unique fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) probes using the BAC-2-FISH™ process and the ZooFISH, which covers our non-human FISH probe capabilities. 

Sysmex Belgium
Sysmex Belgium specialise in the distribution of High-Tech and Medium-Tech analytical equipment. Our dedicated Sysmex team aims to offer our customers trust and performance. From today Sysmex Belgium will distribute and support the Cytocell range. If you have any questions or would like to receive an offer, please click here.

About FISH
Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is a method that uses fluorescent substances bound only to specific genes to detect target genes within chromosomes. FISH testing is known for its use in gene testing for cancer and leukemia. This type of testing is listed in the tumor classification guidelines (WHO classification) formulated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, an organization under the World Health Organization (WHO). Probes are composed of specific DNA and complementary base sequences, a probe is a base sequence synthetically produced to combine with the DNA to be detected. A probe is used to detect where the target DNA exists.
