Coeliac Tests

CoeliacScreen™ and CoeliacScreen™ Professional are qualitative rapid diagnostic tests to detect the presence of IgA and IgG anti-transglutaminase (tTG) antibodies associated with coeliac disease.

As you will be aware coeliac disease is a common condition that affects up to 1% of the UK population. The symptoms of the disease are non-specific and frequently mistaken for other conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), wheat intolerance or symptoms of stress. As a result the under-diagnosis of coeliac disease is a common and serious problem. It is estimated that only 15% of people with the condition are diagnosed and studies have shown that on average it takes 13 years for an individual to be diagnosed with coeliac disease in the UK.

The tests’ are designed to aid in the diagnosis of coeliac disease, particularly as they detect the presence of both IgA and IgG antibodies to tTG. Most coeliac screening tests only detect IgA antibodies to tTG. Since IgA deficiency is 3 times more common in coeliac patients than normal these tests will not detect a significant proportion of patients who cannot produce IgA antibodies. Coeliac patients who are IgA deficient will produce IgG antibodies instead and these are also recognised by CoeliacScreen™ and CoeliacScreenTM Professional.

The tests’ are very easy to perform and takes just 5 minutes to complete. In both tests a capillary blood sample is required and a lancet is provided in the CoeliacScreen. The blood sample is transferred to the test cassette using a micro-pipette provided and after the addition of three drops of buffer solution your result will be shown in 5 minutes. The test shows positive if IgA or IgG antibodies to tTG are detected.
