FIT provides better analytical sensitivity and specificity for human haemoglobin and is superior in detection of adenomatous polyps as well as colorectal cancers (CRC).
Alpha Laboratories has many years experience in faecal haemoglobin testing having been involved with the UK Bowel Cancer Screening Programmes since 1998. Our solution for FIT testing is the HM-JACKarc system that offers fully automated testing and simple, hygienic sample collection for patients.
The HM-JACKarc is a high throughput, fully automated system that provides quantitative faecal haemoglobin concentration results on a platform that is simple to use in both asymptomatic screening and assessment of the symptomatic clinical settings.
The system is easy to set up and can be loaded with up to 80 samples at any one time. It can stand alone or be linked to the LIS, allowing flexible options for connectivity and full audit trail of results, QC and reagent lot numbers.
