Calprotectin (Crohn’s, IBS, IBD)

Your calprotectin check involves taking a small stool sample, using our simple collection kit, from the comfort of your own home.  Once you’ve taken and returned the sample, our laboratory will analyse your sample to check the levels of faecal calprotectin.

According to IBS charity, the IBS Network, at any given time around 1 to 2 in 10 people in the UK have IBS, and it usually develops in people aged between 20 and 40. The charity Crohn’s and Colitis UK say a further 300,000 people have Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis.  A calprotectin test may help assess whether you may have a digestive issue.  It’s easier and far less invasive than other methods such as colonoscopies or imaging studies, which your GP might call for if your result from this test comes back as raised.

All our tests have been specially designed to be convenient and non-invasive. Once you’ve booked your appointment, full preparation instructions will be provided in your confirmation email or letter. You can continue to eat and drink normally before your appointment, and you’ll also remain fully clothed throughout.
