Calprotectin Immunoturbidimetric Assay

The Calprotectin Immunoturbidimetric Assay is an in vitro diagnostic particle-enhanced immunoassay for the quantitative measurement of fecal calprotectin, a neutrophilic protein that is a marker of intestinal mucosal inflammation, in human stool. The assay is intended for use as an aid in the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), specifically Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), and as an aid in the differentiation of IBD from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings.
