From a fecal sample, a non-invasive calprotectin test can be used as a first measure of screening for IBD. In general, high levels of fecal calprotectin is used as an indicator of intestinal inflammation.

Calprotectin Protocol

Calprotectin is extracted from stool according to the BÜHLMANN fCALTM ELISA Calprotectin assay and measured fluorometrically in a microtiter.

Outputs are recorded and normalized as a single value (concentration of calprotectin) per sample.
