CoeliacScreen

Coeliac Disease (Gluten Intolerance) Home Test

An easy to use home test for Coeliac (Celiac) Disease and Gluten Intolerance that gives you an accurate result in just 5 minutes, even if you have low levels of IgA
 

CoeliacScreen is a quick and reliable home coeliac test that detects the presence of both IgA and IgG anti-tissue transglutaminase (tTG) antibodies associated with coeliac disease.

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

CoeliacScreen is a unique home test for Coeliac Disease

CoeliacScreen is designed to help in the diagnosis of coeliac disease and is unique in detecting the presence of both IgA and IgG antibodies to tissue transglutaminase,(tTG), unlike other coeliac screening tests that only detect IgA antibodies. This is very important as IgA deficiency is more than 10 to 15 times more common in coeliac patients than normal. Coeliac patients who are IgA deficient will produce IgG antibodies instead, which will be detected by CoeliacScreen, but not by tests that only detect IgA antibodies.

In the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Guidelines for Coeliac Disease assessment they recommend that the primary test to perform is IgA tissue transglutaminase (tTG). If this IgA tTG test is negative and total IgA levels are low, NICE then recommend a secondary test for IgG tTG or Deaminated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgG is performed. CoeliacScreen is unique in including both types of primary and secondary tests that NICE recommend for Coeliac Disease assessment in one home test.

The test is very easy to perform and takes just 5 minutes to complete. It requires a small finger prick blood sample that you take using a lancet provided in the kit. The blood sample is transferred to the CoeliacScreen 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 you have IgA or IgG antibodies to tTG.
