BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo and fPELA® turbo

The technology of immunoturbidimetry implements a further milestone in faecal calprotectin 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 assay can be applied on all automated platforms in clinical chemistry and allows short turnaround time from stool sample to reportable result. The combination of these tests with the BÜHLMANN CALEX® Cap extraction device simplifies the cumbersome procedure for stool pre-analytics and is adapted to the use on many clinical chemistry analyzers. No additional pipetting and manual dilution steps are required anymore.

Speed: The turbo calprotectin test is the fastest in the market. Results are achieved within 10 minutes. The broad measurable range of direct testing from 15 to 2000 µg/g calprotectin reduces the amount of retesting down to <5%.

Quality: The assay is standardized against the BÜHLMANN fCAL® ELISA, the same cut-offs can be applied. Particle-enhanced turbidimetric immunoassay (PETIA) further increases the precision and reproducibility of calprotectin quantification.

Flexibility: Immunoturbidimetric assays can be applied on any open clinical chemistry platform. This allows random access workflow which can be directly integrated into the existing laboratory infrastructure.
