Self-test to check/or the presence of anti-deamidated gliadin (anti-DGP) antibodies, lgA and IgG, in the blood, for celiac disease screening

Celiac Disease (CD), also known as "celiac sprue", is a chronic inflam­matory disorder of the small intestine, produced by the ingestion of dietary gluten products in susceptible people. It is a multifactorial disease, including genetic and environmental factors. Environmental trigger is represented by gluten while the genetic predisposition has been iden­tified in the major histocompatibility complex region which cause the presence of specific antibodies against gluten and its components. Celiac disease is not a rare disorder like previously thought, with a global preva­lence around 1%. The reason of its under recognition is mainly referable to the fact that about half of affected people do not have the classic gastro­intestinal symptoms, but they present nonspecific manifestations of nutritional deficiency or have no symptoms at all. 

CELIAC TEST is useful for anyone who wants to check for any gluten sensitivity, which must then be confirmed by a specialist.

Draw a blood sample by using the sterile lancet provided.
Collect the sample indicated with the black line by using the capillary pipette provided.

Deposit the collected specimen into the vial, previously opened, then screw it.

Add 3 drops of the obtained liquid into the sample well (S) indicated on the test cassette and wait 10 minutes before reading the result.

What happens if the results reading time is not met?  The test has been carried out correctly when the instructions for use are followed. It includes the reading time and the interpretation of the results shown at the "RESULTS INTERPRETATION" section of the instructions for use

How to prove that the test worked correctly? A coloured line will appear at the control region (C) on the test device, showing that the test performed correctly. The absence of the coloured line suggests to repeat the test with a new device and a new sample.

How to interpret the test if the control and test lines have different intensities? The colour and intensity of the lines do not affect the interpretation of the result. The test has to be considered positive regardless of the colour intensity of the test line (T).
