Faecal calprotectin (FC) is a reliable and non-invasive stool biomarker that is useful in monitoring inflammation in patients with IBD. Testing is routinely performed in a laboratory by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) which is time consuming and costly. QuantonCal (QC) is an immunologic rapid test that can measure calprotectin via a lateral flow device to a smart phone. It is designed to be used by the patient in their home and can deliver a result within 15 min. We sought to compare the accuracy and usability of QC against ELISA.
