Faecal Calprotectin ELISA (IDK®)

Product code: K6927 (96 wells)

Quantitative calprotectin assay

The IDK Faecal Calprotectin ELISA is an enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of human calprotectin (MRP 8/14; S100A8/A9) in stool samples, to rule out and monitor inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) non-invasively. This two-site monoclonal antibody sandwich assay has been evaluated by NICE, and demonstrated excellent analytical and clinical performance in both primary and secondary care settings.

Stool sample extraction

Homogenised stools are extracted using the IDK Extract® universal stool extraction buffer provided, which can be used for many other faecal assays. The extraction process is fast, clean and precise using Rapid Extraction Tubes (IDK Stool Sample Application System) to prepare dilutions, ready for analysis. Stool extracts are stable at room temperature (15-30 °C), 2-8 °C and -20 °C for 7 days.
