Description

Accurate test for measuring human calprotectin

With Biohit Calprotectin ELISA, the determination between inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) can be made non-invasively and in-expensively from a stool sample. In organic disorders like IBD, the concentration fecal calprotectin increases significantly, whereas with functional disorders like IBS this does not occur.

Biohit Calprotectin ELISA can also be used for monitoring the mucosal healing of a patient with IBD. This for example helps to support the practitioner in making informed decisions concerning medication and the need for medical procedures such as endoscopy or surgery.
