Basis and use of the tests
The GlutenDetect Urine and GlutenDetect Stool kits are rapid home tests that have been designed to detect Gluten Immunogenic Peptides (GIP) in either urine or stool samples.
These products are indicated for people who want to self-monitor the gluten-free diet or detect gluten intakes at home, without the necessity of going to a medical center. They are user friendly and quick, as the results are obtained in less than 15 minutes.
The kits are composed of lateral flow strips, similar to a pregnancy test. They also contain everything necessary to treat the urine or stool sample easily, quickly and conveniently at home.
If there are GIP in the sample (and therefore gluten has been consumed) a red line will appear in the test area indicating a positive result. The absence of this line indicates absence of GIP in the sample (negative result). Additionally, a green line will appear (control line) if the test has been properly performed.
