Turbidimetric pancreatic elastase assay

The IDK TurbiPEL is a particle enhanced turbidimetric immunoassay (PETIA) that uses monoclonal antibodies for the determination of human pancreatic elastase in stool samples. The assay can be used to identify exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) and to monitor the levels of digestive enzymes that these patients produce.

Stool sample extraction

Stool samples can be extracted directly using the IDK® TurbiTUBE®, which allows easy, clean and precise preparation of sample extracts. The tube contains 1.5 ml of IDK stool extraction buffer, creating a constant dilution of 1:100 that is ready for analysis and can be loaded directly onto the analyser. This system enables the determination of three parameters using IDKs Turbidimetric assays (calprotectin, pancreatic elastase and haemoglobin) from one single stool sample extract, saving time and money. Stool extracts are stable for up to 7 days at 2-8 °C.

Key Advantages

Enables rapid and effective identification of EPI and monitoring of digestive enzyme levels
Simple, fast and reliable, with short incubation times
Results available in less than 15 minutes, depending on the clinical chemistry analyser
Suitable for high throughput workflows, including continuous loading and random access
Reduced hands-on time using the IDK TurbiTUBE with one extract for three turbidimetric assays – calprotectin, pancreatic elastase and haemoglobin
Broad measuring range (5-400 μg/g)
Good clinical correlation with corresponding ELISAs
