Nilsen, T. et. al.  A novel turbidimetric immunoassay for fecal calprotectin optimized for routine chemistry analyzers. J Clin Lab Anal. 2016 Sep 15. PMID:27629827

The publication describes the technical performance of the turbidimetric assay on the cobas c501 and the Mindray BS-380.

Highlight from this Publication

  • Short assay time of 10 min with the option of retesting
  • Good agreement to BÜHLMAN fCAL ELISA – commutable results
  • Good linearity and precision
  • Ease of use with sample (No problems with fecal extracts )– comparable to urine samples from a microbiological view
  • No differences between the platforms used
  • No interference problems observed


“BÜHLMANN’s fCAL turbo PETIA is robust assay that is well suited for rapid analysis of fecal calprotectin on Mindray BS-380 or Cobas c501 analyzers providing short test turn-around times. The test results are commutable with BÜHLMANN fecal MRP8/14 ELISA.”
