Calprotectin

Calprotectin is an incredibly valuable research tool.  The calprotectin technology platforms offered by BÜHLMANN range from the gold standard ELISA assay, BÜHLMANN fCAL® ELISA, to the lateral flow rapid test, Quantum Blue®, to the new IBDoc® self test and to the automated random access BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo assay. This portfolio provides all possible applications for measuring calprotectin from the subject’s home test to the high throughput lab. BÜHLMANN is continuously evolving IBD solutions to meet customers’ needs.
