IBDoc® offers an easy and intuitive solution to measure and track the inflammation in patients suffering from Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.

As part of the IBDoc® Calprotectin Test, CalApp® allows to measure the Calprotectin concentration in a stool sample using a smartphone. The app contains an easy to understand tutorial explaining the test procedure step by step from collecting the stool sample to sample extraction and loading the pregnancy-test like test cassette. Once the test cassette is prepared, the CalApp® controls the mobile device camera to take a picture of the test cassette. The optical signal of the test is analysed and calculated using a specific barcode on the test cassette in order to translate the signal into a quantitative level of Calprotectin concentration.
The test information is managed on the smartphone itself and at the same time transmitted via a secure and encrypted connection to the IBDoc® Portal. On the IBDoc® Portal the test results and connected patient information are stored securely and can only be accessed by both the patient and his responsible health care professional.

The CalApp® features include:

-tutorial with schematic drawings and text explaining the test procedure step by step

-A list of all test results performed on the device

-help menu with a tutorial video and support contact

Please be aware that the CalApp® only works with an IBDoc® Account and an IBDoc® Test Kit. This Account has to be set up by clinically trained professional. Please contact your IBD doctor or IBD clinic for additional information.

Please read the Instruction for Use included in the IBDoc® Test Kit carefully before performing the first test.

A data connection is required. Depending on your carrier additional costs might arise.
