Calprotectin Sample Collection Kit
This Calprotectin Sample Collection Kit is intended to be used with the EDI Quantitative Fecal Calprotectin ELISA Kit for measurement of human calprotectin (S100A8/A9). Each unit in this kit is specifically designed for easy collection of a small amount of stool sample into a pre-filled sample extraction buffer.
For in vitro-diagnostic use.
Quantitative determination of fecal calprotectin is an indication of the severity of bowel inflammation. High levels of calprotectin in stool are associated with an increased risk of relapse in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Low stool calprotectin levels correlate well with a low risk for intestinal allograft injection.
