Faecal elastase Immunoturbidimetric reagents fPELA® turbo BÜHLMANN approx 100 tests to identify pancreatic insufficiency & monitor disease

Product code: B-KPELA-RSET

Pack Size: Each
CE Verified: IVDR

Product Information

Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency (PEI), is a condition in which people are unable to adequately digest fats, carbohydrates and proteins due to a lack of digestive enzymes being produced from the pancreas. This results in nutrient malabsorption and malnutrition with severe consequences in the quality of life.
The determination of pancreatic Elastase levels is the most commonly employed indirect test for exocrine pancreatic function. The concentration of the enzyme in feces is five times higher than that in the pancreatic juice. It reflects the level of pancreatic output and correlates also with the output of other pancreatic enzymes such as lipase, amylase, and trypsin
The BÜHLMANN fPELA® turbo is ideal for use in high throughput laboratory environments for identification and monitoring pancreatic insufficiency in patients and can be used on many open access biochemistry analysers. The technology is a milestone in automation of pancreatic elastase quantification. It allows very rapid and flexible random access use, as well as being the ideal solution for high throughput applications in the routine laboratory. The fPELA turbo assay reduces the hands-on time dramatically and allows reporting pancreatic elastase results from human stool samples within shortest time.
