EpiTuub® Fecal Calprotectin Rapid Test Kit


This Epituub Calprotectin Test Device is a rapid immunological test intended for the qualitative detection of Calprotectin in feces by professional laboratories and physician office laboratories. The test is used as an aid in the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease. Fecal Calprotectin levels correlate significantly with histological and endoscopic assessment of disease activity in ulcerative collitis, as well as with fecal - antitrypsin levels and fecal excretion of indium labeled white blood cells in patients with Crohn's disease.
