French success story: From Quantum Blue® to ELISA to turbidimetry

The French private lab, CEF-Boulard, Paris uses BÜHLMANN Calprotectin assays since 2010. Initially, the lab started with BÜHLMANN Quantum Blue® Calprotectin. The increasing test numbers required upgrading their methodological workflow. In 2012 the lab switched to BÜHLMANN fCAL® ELISA applied on DS2 microplate robot from Dynex. In 2017 the successful switch from ELISA to BÜHLMANN fCAL® turbo on AU5800 was fulfilled. The wider measuring range but also the high comparability to the fCAL ELISA strongly supported the decision.

 “Today we are returning our calprotectin results at D0 = same day.”

“The tubes [CALEX® Cap] allow a much more standardized extraction since the factors of variation are minimized due to less manipulation for the technicians, therefore less risks and saving a lot of time.”
