The Fecal Calprotectin Test is a non-invasive diagnostic tool used to assess the level of calprotectin protein in stool samples. Calprotectin is a marker of inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract, which can indicate the presence of conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, as well as differentiate these from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which typically does not cause elevated calprotectin levels. This test is particularly valuable for monitoring disease activity and response to treatment in individuals with known IBD.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Fecal Calprotectin Test is offered at a cost of 720 AED. Conducted in a state-of-the-art facility, the test provides a reliable and efficient means for clinicians to guide the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal disorders without the need for more invasive procedures like colonoscopy, especially in the initial screening phase. Patients are required to provide a stool sample, which is then analyzed using sophisticated laboratory techniques to quantify the level of calprotectin, thereby aiding in the assessment of intestinal inflammation.

FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test at a cost of AED 720.0. This test is used to diagnose and monitor inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Test Details

The FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test measures the level of calprotectin, a protein found in white blood cells, in a person’s stool. Calprotectin is released into the stool when there is inflammation in the intestines, specifically the colon.

The test is non-invasive and can provide valuable information about the level of inflammation in the gut. It is often used in conjunction with other diagnostic tests, such as colonoscopy and blood tests, to help confirm a diagnosis of IBD or monitor disease activity.

To perform the test, a small sample of stool (minimum 2g) should be collected in a clean dry container. The sample should be shipped refrigerated and should not be frozen. Our laboratory will deliver the test results on the same day if the sample is submitted by 9 am from Monday to Saturday.

Method

The FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test is conducted using the CLIA method.

Test Type

The FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test is specifically used for the diagnosis of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract.

Doctor

The FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test is typically ordered by a Gastroenterologist.

Pre Test Information

No special preparation is required for the FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test.

Interpretation of Results

The laboratory measures the level of calprotectin in the stool sample and reports the results in micrograms per gram (g/g) of stool. Higher levels of calprotectin indicate increased inflammation in the intestines.

It is important to note that the FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test is not specific to IBD and can also be elevated in other conditions that cause inflammation in the gut, such as infections or gastrointestinal bleeding. Therefore, the test should be interpreted in the context of a person’s symptoms and other diagnostic findings.

Conclusion

The FECAL CALPROTECTIN Test is a valuable tool in the evaluation and management of inflammatory bowel diseases. It helps healthcare providers assess disease activity, guide treatment decisions, and monitor response to therapy. At DNA Labs UAE, we offer this test at a cost of AED 720.0.

Fecal calprotectin testing is not specific to IBD and can also be elevated in other conditions that cause inflammation in the gut, such as infections or gastrointestinal bleeding. Therefore, the test is primarily used as a screening tool and should be interpreted in the context of a person’s symptoms and other diagnostic findings.
