It is estimated that more than one in three people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime. Therefore, early detection is very important. Our in-vitro immunological rapid tests are quick and reliable, helping in the diagnosis of common cancers such as bladder, colon, or prostate cancer.
Bladder cancer is the seventh most common cancer in the UK. There are more than twice as many cases of bladder cancer in men than in women.
After prostate cancer; bladder cancer is the second most common urological tumour and one of the most expensive cancers due to the lifelong care and treatment that is required.
The cure rate in bladder cancer, on average, is over 50% however, it has a high relapse rate of 70% making regular following-ups necessary for early detection of relapse.
The chances of recovery are highly dependent on the speed of diagnosis. When detected early, the bladder can often be saved. However in about 30% of patients upon initial diagnosis, the tumour is already in the muscular layer of the bladder. It is crucial for regular screening to detect bladder cancer before it becomes life threatening.
For this area, we offer the following rapid test:
Occult blood, or blood not visible in the stool (FOB, fecal occult blood), can point to various diseases (eg, polyps, fissures, diverticulitis). A particularly serious problem often leading to occult blood are colorectal carcinomas, these account for more than 95% of malignant colon tumors.
Through early detection of occult blood (human haemoglobin) in the faeces, it is possible to diagnose diseases of the colon in its early stages. This results in a timely treatment which is crucial, especially in colorectal cancer screening.
Through preventive screening for occult blood in the stool, the chance of recovery is increases significantly. Individuals who fall into the following categories should undertake precautionary screenings: elderly patients (over 50 years old), individuals with colon cancer in the family, alcohol consumption, smoking, obesity and lack of exercise.
For this area, we offer you our following rapid tests:
Through preventative screening for occult blood in the stool, chances of recovery increase significantly. People with the following risk factors should actively take preventative measures and regularly screen for the disease: older patients (starting at 50 years old), bowel cancer within the family, diet composing of meat and fat, alcohol consumption, smoking, obesity and little movement throughout the day.
For this field we offer the following rapid tests:
