Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is one of the most dangerous and lethal cancers. It represents the second leading cause of cancer related death in the western world with almost two million of new cases/year and 0.9 million deaths. If early diagnosed, CRC is curable in most of the cases, therefore most countries organize national or regional screenings to identify the cancers in their early stage, making the cure more efficient and thus considerably decreasing mortality. Those screening programs are testing millions of people every year and this creates new challenges in the practical organization of the laboratories. Now, a new high throughput analyzer for fecal immunochemical testing can meet the need for throughput, automation and accuracy in the most demanding situations.

Sentinel Diagnostics’ (Milan, Italy) new SENTiFIT 800 analyzer is a fully automated and high throughput system for fecal immunochemical test. The high-end system dedicated to fecal testing is able to process up to 550 tests per hour and one million tests every year with total automation and full traceability. It enables a reduction in hands-on time, better management of resources and decrease in manual errors. The system is fed by a dedicated sample loader (Rack Handler RH-150) that provides a steady flow of up to 250 samples to the analyzer unit.

The CE-marked SENTiFIT 800 Analyzer is compatible with the company’s FOB Gold line, the complete solution for the identification of occult blood in feces, and with its CALiaGold line of reagents for the quantification of fecal Calprotectin, the first-choice test to identify the presence of inflammation in the bowel.

"For almost 20 years, Sentinel Diagnostics has supported the fight against colorectal cancer with high quality FOB Gold test and analyzers," said Marco Buonaguidi, Head of Sales and Marketing at Sentinel Diagnostics. "The SENTiFIT 800 has been developed specifically for FIT screening centers and represents a step further in the direction to strengthen our commitment in the field of gastrointestinal diseases diagnosis."
