CALEX® Cap / CALEX® Valve stool extraction

The BÜHLMANN CALEX® Cap has been introduced to fulfill the requirements of convenient and safe stool extraction. The simple handling makes it applicable in self testing . The optimized dilution of stool sample yields maximum extraction efficiency while offering a stability of the extracts for up to 3 days, suitable for transportation at ambient temperatures. The extraction using CALEX® Cap shows very good correlation to gold standard weighing method for stool extraction and is therefore characterized by high reliability.

Furthermore, the design of the CALEX® Cap is fully compatible with automated procedures such as the newly introduced BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo, the random access immuno turbidimetric calprotectin assay. Optimized dilution of stool extracts provides access to any of BÜHLMANN calprotectin assays such as Quantum Blue®and the BÜHLMANN fCAL® ELISA.

The CALEX® Valve Extraction device was introduced in combination with IBDoc® combining stool extraction and pipetting in one device, but can be used also with other BÜHLMANN calprotectin assays such as Quantum Blue®. It is based on the CALEX® Cap but features a valve that allows the release of a specified amount of stool extract directly onto a laminar flow test cassette. CALEX® Valve is intended for use in the BÜHLMANN calprotectin self testing application IBDoc®.
