CalFast Calprotectin Assay

Eurospital- CalFastCalFast is a fast, reliable and quantitative test for the measurement of the level of calprotectin in stool.
The test can be performed in less than 20 minutes, ideal for small series of patients whose symptoms can be referred to Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
The diagnostic application of CalFast is based on the quantitative measurement of calprotectin in stools: in patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease the level of calprotectin in generally very high.

Interpretation of results

Samples with a concentration of calprotectin exceeding 70 mg/kg should be considered positive. The average value of calprotectin in healthy adults is approximately 25 mg/kg. A positive CalFast result indicates intestinal inflammation and allows to safely submit patients to further diagnostic investigations.

Screening and follow up

CalFast performances, its ease-of-use and the non-invasive ELISA method do not limit the use of CalFast to diagnosis only, but make it useful for screening procedures also to detect, for instance, the inflammatory causes of chronic diarrhea. Moreover, CalFast can also be applied in the follow up of IBD, diverticulitis and in the monitoring of the treatment.
