CALEX® Cap Collection Set – Fecal Home Extraction Kit

The BÜHLMANN CALEX® Cap has been introduced to fulfill the requirements of convenient and safe stool extraction. Both fecal calprotectin and p-elastase can be measured out of the same extraction tube. The optimized dilution of stool sample yields maximum extraction efficiency while offering stability of the calprotectin and p-elastase extracts for various days at room temperature.

CALEX® Cap is the first and only stool extraction device certified for safe air and land transportation according to IATA 650 (UN3373) regulations. This allows the option to outsource preanalytics to the patient’s homes, thereby increasing safety for laboratories and revolutionizing the workflow of stool testing in terms of speed, efficiency and cost savings.

With the CALEX®Cap Collection Set it is possible to keep stool samples away from the laboratory and measure fecal calprotectin and p-elastase from ready-to-use extracts using the high quality BÜHLMANN assays.

The CALEX® Cap Collection Set is fully compatible with automated procedures such as the newly introduced BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo and BÜHLMANN fPELA® turbo,  the random access immunoturbidimetric assays. Optimized dilution of stool extracts provides access to all BÜHLMANN calprotectin assays such as Quantum Blue® and the BÜHLMANN fCAL® ELISA.
