- Biomedal presents GlutenDetect, the first home test on the market for celiac to check adherence to a Gluten Free Diet
- This kit detects the ingestion of gluten in urine and stool samples and it shows results in less than 15 minutes
- The product is the result of several I+D+i projects, which have been developed in cooperation with scientists from University of Seville and co-financed by the Madrid Celiac and Sensitive to Gluten Association, Technical Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) and Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness
The Spanish biotechnology company Biomedal launches its new product to determine if there is any gluten intake by celiac patients. The official presentation has taken place recently, during the Free From Food Expo in Barcelona, the European health trade show for free-from, functional and vital foods industries, that closed its doors last Friday, June 9th. The kit, that reaches the market as GlutenDetect, detects gluten traces through a fast analysis in celiac patients urine and stool. With a similar technique to a pregnancy test, the reactive strip in GlutenDetect shows results in minutes.
This product is a result of different I+D+I projects developed by Biomedal in collaboration with a scientist group from the University of Seville, who have been co-financed by the Madrid Celiac and Sensitive to Gluten Association the Technical Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) and the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness. Researches from the Virgen del Rocío Hospital and the Pediatric Institute of Seville have also participated in these investigations.
