These are dedicated, specially designed products to minimise operator contact with the sample, whilst optimising extraction of calprotectin. Quick-Prep™ XL The Quick-Prep XL faecal extraction device is a four step, one tube extraction procedure that minimises stool handling. The tubes come pre-filled with 1.3 ml of extraction buffer. 1. Turn the dosing tip counter-clockwise and remove it by pulling it upwards. Preparation of sample 2. Insert the dosing tip into the fecal sample (depth approximately 2 cm). Repeat sampling 3-5 times in order to fill the grooves completely. Insert the dosing tip back into the tube and firmly close it by turning the dosing tip clockwise. 3 Homogenize the sample by vortexing for 30 sec., let it stand for 10 min. and vortex again for 30 sec. using a vibration mixer. Repeat this step until the faeces has completely been removed from dosing tip. 4. Turn the cone containing the dosing tip counter-clockwise and remove by pulling it upwards. The sample is now ready for extract processing and dilution for the calprotectin determination as described for the respective kit. Smart-Prep Alternatively, if the sample is quite dry and firm, the Smart- Prep Faecal extraction device may be more suitable. 1. Carefully press the faeces sample into the hollow cavity in the base cap and level off. Preparation of sample 2. Firmly press the tube onto the base cap and detach the tag. 3 Remove the stopper cap and add 4 ml of extraction buffer (BCAL-EX). 4. Carefully re-cap the tube and homogenize the sample for 1 min using a vibration mixer until no large particles can be seen. The sample is now ready for testing.
