Interview with Yvonne Schallberger, Bioanalytica Lucerne
Mrs. Schallberger, you recently decided to introduce the new calprotectin assay, BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo, which offers a calprotectin result in random access mode on all USUAL clinical chemistry analysers within 10 minutes?
You perform the BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo assay on the Roche cobas® c501 for some months now. How was the setup of the test onto the cobas® c501 and how is the performance of the fCAL® turbo assay in daily routine?
You perform stool extraction by using the CALEX® Cap extraction device from BÜHLMANN. What do think about its handling and application onto the Roche Cobas® c501?
Have you ever had to experience interferences with other clinical chemistry tests because of using stool extracts with the CALEX® Cap on the cobas® c501 system?
You have shown in an evaluation-study that it is possible to also measure the ScheBo®Pankreas Elastase out of the very same CALEX® Cap stool extract. Do you see this as a significant advantage?
Before introducing fCAL turbo, you used the BÜHLMANN fCAL® ELISA for a long time. How did the tests compare when you did the method comparison during evaluation?
Are you satisfied with the service and support by BÜHLMANN?
Thank you very much for the interview
