BÜHLMANN Quantum Blue® – Rapid, Individual Calprotectin Testing
As BSG guidelines are showing that colonoscopies are being heavily restricted, calprotectin testing will become more important to get an indication of the gut health.
BÜHLMANN calprotectin assays offer a range of testing options, including Quantum Blue® individual lateral flow tests for those urgent requests.
Quantum Blue® can give you quantitative faecal calprotectin results in just 4 easy steps and can also easily be linked directly to your computer for quick data input, making it an ideal choice in an emergency situation.
There are three assay ranges available:
LF-CAL25 30 – 300µg/g
LF-CHR25 100 – 1800µg/g
LF-CALE25 30 – 1000µg/g
Each pack contains 25 individually sealed tests – therefore if you only want one test, then you only have to use one.
Quantum Blue® has a well documented correlation to clinical outcome:
“This rapid bedside test can facilitate clinical decisions on hospital admission, such as deciding whether the IBD treatment should be intensified. Similarly, in the ambulatory setting, it is crucial when determining whether a patient should undergo endoscopy or not.”

“Quantum Blue® provides high diagnostic accuracy and was less time consuming in clinical routine than quantification of faecal calprotectin by ELISA. This makes the test an excellent candidate for the use in clinical routine.”

IBDoc® – Remote Management for IBD Patients
Using smartphone technology the IBDoc enables UC and CD patients to test their own calprotectin levels in the comfort and safety of their own homes freeing up valuable resource at this challenging time.
The IBDoc generates a quantitative result between 30 – 1000µg/g which is quickly and securely transmitted to the clinic for immediate access by the clinical teams enabling them to continue to monitor their patients giving a good indication on the health of the gut.
