Our gastroenterology product portfolio is not only dedicated to the advanced diagnosis of gut-related diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease or pancreatic insufficiency but also perfectly suited for the prevention of gut-related diseases such as colon cancer.
The ELISA tests are suited for single plate or medium-high-throughput analysis on automated readers. Below, you can find the markers and their diagnostic relevance at a glance.
Biomarkers for clinical diagnostics
Biological markers (biomarkers) are measurable indicators for specific conditions. The following biomarkers are relevant in gastroenterology:
- Calprotectin is a highly specific indicator of gastrointestinal inflammation which is used for differentiation of IBD and IBS and for treatment monitoring.
- Haemoglobin is a very efficient marker for colon cancer screening. The antibody-based tests RIDASCREEN® Haemoglobin and RIDASCREEN® Haemo-/Haptoglobin Complex are more specific than Guaiac-based tests. A combined testing of both parameters increases the probability to detect ademonas.
- α1-antitrypsin and sIgA indicate the integrity of the gut wall. This is relevant for monitoring and diagnosing the leaky gut syndrome.
- Pancreatic elastase and pankrin are used for the detection of pancreatic insufficiency and pancreatitis.
