A rapid, point-of-care test for above-normal levels of faecal calprotectin, a marker of inflammatory activity in the bowel and indicator of disorders such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), for patients presenting with undiagnosed chronic abdominal symptoms
PreventID CalScreen is a rapid immunological test for the detection of calprotectin in faeces.
The determination of calprotectin in stool enables differentiation between organic intestinal diseases (e.g. chronic inflammatory diseases, infectious diseases, polyps, colon cancer) and functional intestinal diseases (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome [IBS]). Measurement of faecal calprotectin is also ideal for monitoring disease activity (e.g. in Crohn’s disease or after polyp resection), for early detection of relapse and for therapy monitoring.
