The Fecal calprotectin test is widely used as a diagnostic tool to distinguish between inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

All the Calpro`s tests are quantitative methods for the determination of small intestine, large bowel or the stomach in patients, to determine the disease activity and monitor the response to treatment in patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn`s disease.
