IBDoc® Talk #2


IBDoc® is the first self-testing application for fecal calprotectin in IBD patients that involves three easy steps. Based on BÜHLMANN’s long-lasting experience with calprotectin assays, IBDoc® provides IBD patients a convenient method for self-testing. CALEX® Valve has been developed for simple and easy-to-handle stool extraction with a valve designed to allow the precise application of 60 µl onto the test cassette. The CalApp® smartphone application (available for iOS and Android) is used to transform smartphones into a test cassette reader using sophisticated image processing.

IBDoc® Talk is a teleconference series on lessons learned for those using IBDoc® Calprotectin Home Test. This is a means to create a content sharing vector for clinicians and medical staff to provide insights and experiences from seasoned users to newbies.
