Faecal Analysis System

The Faecal Analysis System builds on our expertise in faecal testing with the aim of offering a single supply source for the major diagnostic tests in this area.

 

Products for Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Image of Calprotectin ELISA kitCalprotectin is a heterodimeric calcium binding protein (MRP8/14), which is present in both neutrophils and monocytes. Calprotectin is released from these cell types at sites of active inflammation. Calprotectin is a proven biomarker for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD), such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, where levels are raised in faecal samples. Calprotectin allows for non-invasive discrimination between IBD and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). EK-CAL provides quantitative determination of Calprotectin in faecal samples.

Products for Pancreatic Insufficiency

Image of Pancreatic Elastase ELISAElastase is a pancreatic enzyme that degrades connective tissue. Pancreatic elastase does not undergo any significant degradation during intestinal transit. Therefore, measurement of Faecal Elastase can be used to diagnose or exclude pancreatic insufficiency associated with chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, carcinoma of the pancreas, Diabetes mellitus type 1, Schwachman-Diamond syndrome and other pancreatic diseases. BS-86-01 provides quantitative determination of Pancreatic Elastase levels in faecal samples and can be supplied with faecal extraction tubes.

Products for Infectious disease

Image of Helicobactor pylori Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a spiral bacterium and is associated with a variety of gastrointestinal diseases including gastritis, duodenal and gastric ulcers, non-ulcer dyspepsia, gastric adenocarcinoma and lymphoma. The organism is present in 95-98% of patients with duodenal ulcers and 60-90% of patients with gastric ulcers.

The Easy-Card H. pylori test, designed for rapid detection of H. pylori antigen in stool sampes, gives an answer in just 10 minutes. Sample processing is quick and simple using the dip stick sampling device and pre-filled buffer tube. The Easy-Card's lateral flow technology means it is clear and easy to read. It also has an integral control to validate the assay and the sensitivity is 94%, and specificity 99%.

Handling Stool Samples

Image of Stool Handling equipmentA range of products are now available to simplify and assist the pre-analytical faecal extraction process. These are dedicated, specially designed products to minimise operator contact with the sample whilst optimising extraction of the analytical parameter.

Also, these ELISA assays typically use only small amounts of faecal sample (50-100mg) further reducing any unpleasantness to the operator.
