Fecal Calprotectin Test
OC-FCa™ Reagent (For OC-SENSOR PLEDIA)
OC-FCa Reagent is for quantitative measurement of calprotectin in feces using automated immunochemical analyser, OC-SENSOR PLEDIA. Use the same collecting device OC-Auto Sampling Bottle 3 same as FIT with OC-SENSOR PLEDIA. OC-Auto Sampling Bottle 3 and OC-SENSOR PLEDIA are used in more than 45 countries for quantitative measurement of fecal hemoglobin.
OC-FCa can provide significant improvement in below three points regarding productivity;
Point 1. For patients, use the same OC-Auto Sampling Bottle 3, as fecal immunochemical test (FIT). Only one-time collection by the patient with lower gastrointestinal symptoms.
Point 2 . For laboratories, no specimen extraction required after collecting stool by patients.
Point 3. For doctors, getting the result of both FIT and Calprotectin in a short time, help predict the risk of colorectal cancer, advanced adenoma, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.
Latex Reagent for OC-SENSOR series is an immunoassay test reagent and used together with an automatic analyzer for measurement of calprotectin in stool. Latex Reagent contains the latex particles coated with anti-human calprotectin antibodies for optical measurement of the latex agglutination reaction.
The change in absorbance per unit time resulting from the latex agglutination reaction is proportional to the concentration of calprotectin in the sample. A dose response curve of the absorbance unit (OD) vs. concentration is generated using the results obtained from the calibrators. The concentration of calprotectin in the patient sample is determined from this curve.
