Highlights from this Publication

This study found an optimal stability of fecal calprotectin when sampled with CALEX® extraction buffer and stored at 2-8 °C for 7 days. Furthermore, the CALEX® extraction buffer shows the best performance among the other manufacturers.

“The stability of faecal calprotectin depends on the extraction buffer and the storage conditions….These results suggest that the stability of faecal calprotectin in extraction buffer depends on the method specific extraction buffer and the storage conditions of the extracted sample…”
